Dilma Rousseff, daughter of a Bulgarian immigrant, was the first woman democratically elected to hold the Brazilian presidency. Jailed and tortured from 1970 to 1972 under the military dictatorship, she has become a symbol for the quest of democracy of the Brazilian people. Maria Augusta Ramos films the trial that led to her impeachment with a powerful energy that recalls the very best political thrillers of the seventies. (Directed by Maria Ramos, 2018, Brazil,/Netherlands/Germany, 139 mins., Not Rated)
