Brazil a changed country, says movie star Braga

Brazilian actress Sonia Braga (L) and French producer Emilie Lesclaux protest ahead of the screening of the film 'Aquarius', during the 69th Cannes Film Festival, in May 2016It was a screening to promote her latest film, but actress Sonia Braga could not help weighing in on the political situation in her native Brazil, just weeks after the ouster of its first woman president. “There is a coup in Brazil, (but) it is not a military coup,” Braga lamented late Friday after the screening of “Aquarius,” a movie some see as a symbol of political resistance. Latin America’s biggest country has endured months of political upheaval, culminating with the removal from office in August of Dilma Rousseff on charges that she violated government budget laws.
