During the process of investigation of relationships between cinema, photography, and video art, the authors have been working global-local themes. Presenting in this video a one-shot view of Copacabana, which is the most populated neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro; here we see it empty of people and cars, a skyline with all windows closed. We are seeing only its architecture and some other nature´s presence. What seems to be just a flying journey into an avenue could turn out to be a poetic surprise.
