Description: This is a never before seen documentary short which employs images captured more than 50 years ago. In April 1954, during the festivities of the fourth centennial of Sao Paulo, the filmmaker went to Ibirapuera Park with his 16mm wind-up Kodak and shot six minutes of a wonderful show by Pessoal da Velha Guarda, with Pixinguinha, Donga, Joao da Bahiana, Almirante, Alfredinho do Flautin, Jaco Palmieri and Benedito Lacerda.
Pixinguinha tells this story and recovers the lost footage.
Language: Portuguese with English subtitles
