Shanghai Banzai is an ironic short documentary about an old and poor district nearby Vilnius city centre called Šnipiškės, which is also known as Shanghai. Film exposes a paradoxical situation where countryside with its multicultural (Lithuanians, Russians, Poles, Romanies) community exists in the very centre of Vilnius. Film also tries to find out the origin of district’s nickname Shanghai. The protagonists of the movie are the inhabitants of Vilnius Shanghai, each with their own rules, loves, habits and sins. Most of them live in the past still recalling their youth. Now modern skyscrapers exchange old wooden houses and nobody knows what destiny awaits the Shanghai community.
