Costa Rica Entertainment – Pacifica Gray is bringing us Aquarius, by Kleber Mendonca Filho, the both acclaimed and controversial Brazilian film.
Dona Clara, played by Sonia Braga, is the main character. She wants to remain strong, calm and collected as she refuses to be bought out of her home.
She loves living in front of the beach, where she spends the day listening to music. No one is going to move her.
The work stole headlines at Cannes. It came just in time to coincide with a coup that happened in Brazil.
They held banners protesting political maneuvers that took Dilma Rousseff out of power.
Sonia’s powerful performance highlights themes such as money versus communal life, naturalized corruption and harassed women.
The work is about dignity and the ability to fight.
