The Edge of Democracy: The Rise of Authoritarianism in Brazil. #JairBolsonaro vs #LulaLivre

A Conversation with Petra Costa the Director of "The Edge of Democracy"

With unprecedented access to Brazil’s previous two presidents, Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff, Costa document’s the rise and fall of not just two presidents and their party, but the integrity of Brazil’s post-dictatorship democracy and with it the hopes of an entire generation.

In her new film, The Edge of Democracy, director Petra Costa tells the story of how Brazil went from a rising star among free nations to democracy on the verge of collapse.
