LACS Film Screening and Q&A. O Processo (The Trial)

Maria Augusta Ramos, Filmmaker
Thursday, October 18, 2018
4:30-7:30 PM
Room 110-120 Weiser Hall Map
O PROCESSO (THE TRIAL) is a behind-the-scenes look at the impeachment trial of Brazil’s first female President. As Ramos’ camera quietly follows the proceedings, the film witnesses a spectacle of betrayal and corruption and the collapse of the nation’s democratic institutions.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Feature film at Vision du Reel, Documenta Madrid, Indie Lisboa, and Buenos Aires Documentary Film Festival.

Maria Augusta Ramos has won major awards for her seven documentary films, including, in 2013, the Marek Nowicki Prize from the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights for her body of work.
