The cast of the Brazilian film "Aquarius" held a protest at their Cannes Film Festival red carpet premiere on Tuesday, holding signs reading that Brazil is experiencing a coup.
Other signs claimed that Brazil is no longer a democracy. On Thursday, Brazil's Senate voted to impeach President Dilma Rousseff, the South American country's first female leader, for allegedly using illegal accounting tricks to hide deficits in federal budgets.
Rousseff has insisted she has done nothing wrong and has called the impeachment a coup. The Senate elected an acting president, 75-year-old Michel Temer, who's married to a 32-year-old former beauty pageant contestant.
"Aquarius," directed by Kleber Mendonca Filhois, is about an aging music critic trying to keep her apartment against developers. It's competing for the Palme d'Or.
