  • 17/04/19 O PROCESSO

  • Organized in collaboration with Nalacs, KRITERION x IDFA and CEDLA

    O Processo (The Trial) portrays the impeachment trial of former Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff, focusing on the defense team, who struggles to prove her innocence against a majority vote by a Congress riddled with corruption. A tale of betrayal and corruption, the film presents Rousseff’s personal story: herself imprisoned and tortured by the country’s former military dictatorship, she now faces impeachment accused of fiscal crimes. The screening will be followed by talk with director Maria Ramos, Dr. Fábio de Castro (Nalacs and CEDLA) and Celia Alldridge (Coletivo Amsterdam pela Democracia). After the screening there will be music by Eddu Grau, a Brazilian singer and composer who takes you on a danceable journey through the most prominent Brazilian musical genres. From samba, carioca funk, Brazilian Popular Music to reggae, with influences from the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro and popular rhythms from the Northeast of Brazil. +INFO

  • Dr Julienne Weegels, Postdoctoral Researcher

    Julienne is much interested in the (gendered) politics of (dis)order, the entanglement of violence and (extralegal modes of) governance, power, justice, and public secrecy. Her PhD research focused on (former) prisoners’ experience of imprisonment and the state and on their ‘performing’ of violence, governance, and ‘change’. Simultaneously, however, it also sought to shed light on the development of Nicaragua’s hybrid carceral state and the intimate relation it projects between extralegality and the exercise of (state) power. This research culminated in the manuscript ‘Performing Prison: Power, Agency, and Co-Governance in Nicaraguan Prisons’. +INFO
