The soundtrack in Curitiba’s Industrial Neighborhood, on the outskirts of the capital of Paraná, is rap. Directed by the duo Betinho Celanex and Danilo Custódio, the documentary film portrays the neighborhood through a cultural scene rejected and ignored by “model city”. Based on interviews with rappers from the J.A.C group, the film looks beyond the stereotypes about this district. (K.M.)
