Hey Jon, fellow brazilian here. Well i understand what the film means as a movement, also i understand the political meaning that it carries, what i dont understand is that what most of those people fight are things that goes on opposite way of what is benefical to them. Yeah, Brazil is in an uproar with Temer and Dilma, the context? The same old thing of left vs right. Problem: Many artists here fight on brazil against the government because the new measures include things such as the dissolution of the Ministry of Culture. While it may seem bad, here they use laws such as the "Incentivo da Cultura" to make overpriced productions with false purposes, and this film is such. The film was the favorite here on Brazil to compete for many prizes in Cannes and yet it came back home without winning the prizes it told it would win. And yet "A Moça que Dançou com o Diabo", a film made with R$ 500 had a honorary mention at it. For years, school system stayed the same but just after Temer taking place they are already making changes on education, and relevant changes. While it may seem that Aquarius is a movement and a statement, and of that i think it's amazing, now what the film is stating it's other story. I may bite my tongue, they are protesting as it appears that they are against what is illegal, they dont agree with Temer governmentship (while they elected him just as they did with Dilma) but the thing is: the country might change for so much better that this movie might become a really stupid statement in the future. Yeah they should invest on culture and whatnot, sure, but they are just protesting for what is beneficial to them. Many artists on Brazil are protesting for such reasons, they state it is a coup d'etat but let so many years of corruption slide, so many years of taking away money from Petrobras slide, hell we have many of the biggest natural resources on the world and still many thing are overpriced as hell, many car parts and cars are build here and yet everything is friggin overpriced. So i prefer to believe in A Moça que Dançou com o Diabo rather than Aquarius, for obvious reasons. One thing is to make a protest, and a coherent one, another is protest against corruption while doing the same. Researching the facts it might show that our Rouanet Law did make so much money (on taxes of course) and yet there is such a particular trait to it: They need political aprovement of film projects and such, the problem is: 3% of cultural projects have earned 50% of the year budget to their projects, and coincidentally most of those projects are from such protesters.
