Secret Friend

Amigo Secreto

Maria Augusta Ramos

After almost three decades of democratic stability, Brazil is flirting with fascism. Maria Ramos looks at the decisive role the judiciary has played in this process and how ‘lawfare’—the use of the law as a weapon against political opponents—is endangering democracy. Four journalists investigate how an anti-corruption criminal operation was turned into an instrument of ideological persecution.

First screening followed by a debate in the presence of Maria Augusta Ramos (director), Sílvia Cruz (producer) and Leandro Demori (former executive director of The Intercept Brasil), and moderated by Lídia Mello (curator and researcher).
