Petra Costa
Brazil, 113 min

Brazil’s recent political upheavals and turmoil are reprocessed through Petra Costa’s own family history. The decades long struggle for democracy, the unrelenting power of the economic aristocracies and ultimately the seductions of murderous fascism all come into play in this rousing political and intimate film, that helps to understand how someone like Bolsonaro got elected to the highest office in Brazil.
