Moara Passoni, the co-author and producer of Petra Costa’s Academy Award–nominated The Edge of Democracy, transmutes a young Brazilian woman’s experience of anorexia into images and thoughts of almost ecstatic beauty. Against the backdrop of political and social upheaval in 1990s Brazil, and interweaving memories of her own adolescence with those of other women.
