Maria Augusta Ramos: Exposing the System

Behave Maria Augusta Ramos

Film index A to Z

Juízo

Working in the same vein as Justice, this time the director examines the justice system’s handling of minors. For legal reasons, the film uses re-enactments in which young, non-professional actors recreate true court sessions with real lawyers and judges. Ramos also secured exceptional access to a correctional institution. An essential companion piece to Justice, Behave observes the inevitable fallout of a social impasse. (BD)
