Replay: Politics Ditto... Ditto
The next season of the True/False Podcast doesn't start up for a few more months still, but we thought it was a good time to re-feature an episode from last season. The Edge of Democracy, which screened at this year's festival, is now streaming on Netflix, so we're bringing back our episode with the film's director, Petra Costa.
In The Edge of Democracy Costa uses her own personal experiences – her memories, and family history as a lens through which to view Brazil’s recent political turmoil – the impeachment of Dilma Roussef and the election of Jair Bolsonaro. This episode features a conversation from this year’s fest between Costa and Nanfu Wang, who directed One Child Nation, which itself will be in select theaters in August.
