The Story

In between Brazil and Japan stands a karaoke bar suspended in time and in space where people go to find themselves in the reflections of the mirrors. 515 Rua da Glória is a short documentary about a hidden karaoke in the Japanese neighbourhood Liberdade, São Paulo. A nostalgic place for the elderly Japanese community to remember the old songs from their youth.

The documentary was made for the Fabrica during a 1 internship in December, 2011.
