Contents/Summary

Summary
In “Justiça,” Maria Ramos puts a camera where many Brazilians have never been — a criminal courtroom in Rio de Janeiro, following the daily routine of several characters. There are those that work there every day (public attorneys, judges, and prosecutors) and those that are merely passing through (the accused). The documentary shows the daily life in the courts by observing hearings of relatively petty crimes: a man caught with a stolen car, another accused of complicity in theft, or young people caught carrying drugs and weapons. The filmmaker follows a public attorney, a judge/professor in law and an accused. How and for whom the judicial system works for in Brazil is the fundamental question dealt with in this film.
