The Edge of Democracy, Dir. Petra Costa, Brazil 2019, 113 min., Portuguese English subtitles

I fear our democracy was nothing but a short-lived dream.

– Petra Costa

A cautionary tale for these times of democracy in crisis, this expansive documentary maps the explosion of corruption and far-right politics in Brazil. Combining unprecedented access to leaders past and present – including Presidents Dilma Rousseff and Lula da Silva – with accounts of her own family’s complex political and industrial past, filmmaker Petra Costa considers the nation’s political polarisation.
