Actress Deborah Secco, star of “Bruna Surfistinha”, responded to President Jair Bolsonaro's statement that he can not “allow public films to make such films” by basing his decision to transfer the Superior Council of Cinema to the Civil House . In audio sent by her press office, the actress commented on the phrase.
“I was very sad and a little shocked the movie was put there. We have to talk about everything so that, through art, we can debate about reality. We can not shut up seeing all this, “Secco said.
“The story portrays a real story, not only of Bruna, but of other women who find themselves in this situation. I really wanted that no woman had to sell herself to survive, but that is not the reality of our country. “
Launched in 2011, the film “Bruna Surfistinha” had a budget of about R $ 4 million and used funds raised in the Audiovisual Law, being the highest grossing that year, seen by more than 2 million people in theaters.
