Maria Augusta Ramos: Exposing the System

Justice Maria Augusta Ramos

Film index A to Z

Justiça

Justice lays bare the obscure workings of a very powerful, very complex system. The observation of several sessions of a criminal court in Rio de Janeiro alternates with portraits of three people representing different facets of the justice system (a young defendant, an attorney and a judge). Rather than presenting a straightforward thesis, the film brilliantly exposes the challenges, injustices and long-term repercussions of the system’s activities.

Presented in collaboration with EYE Film Institute Pays-Bas
