Audio Tracks 

Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the Palácio da Alvorada is the official residence of all of Brazil’s presidents, including Dilma Rousseff, in power from 2011 until 2016, at which time she was impeached. Following Dilma Rousseff and her closest members of staff over the days that lead up to the impeachment trial that resulted in her downfall, Alvorada Palace is a poignant reflection on the nature of leadership and power.
