The Galeria Alaska exist: it's kind of one of the first shopping malls in Copacabana, a quarter of Rio de Janeiro. Until the end of the eighties there were various night clubs and bars and it was one of the main locations for Jochen Hicks first feature film Via Appia (1990). Ist was also the location where he first worked together with PC Neumann (DP of Via Appia) with whom he founded 1994 the productions company Galeria Alaska Productions.

Times have changed, most of the nights clubs and bars in the Galeria Alaska have disappeared. Now the brazilian fundamentalist churches overtook and have their service rooms there.
