16:00 Amigo Secreto
19.00 Brazil at tipping point: the October elections

After nearly three decades of democratic stability, Brazil is flirting with fascism. Director Maria Augusta Ramos looks at these dangerous developments, the decisive role the judiciary plays in this process and how “lawfare” – use of law against political opponents – threatens democracy around the world.

Three journalists from the newspaper El País investigate how an anti-corruption investigation by an unscrupulous judge is being misused as a tool of ideological persecution and how it helped the far right and Bolsonaro to power.
