The opening show on the 7th, will be attended by the film's director, the carioca Carlos  Saldanha .

The exhibits range from the first pages of the script to the final film as has come to the screen. There you will be able to see storyboards , sketches of characters and scenarios, and the whole process of computer assembly, showing that the art of  computer graphics programs  join craft techniques  such as gouache, pastel, charcoal and clay modeling, that  still needed to make the quality aesthetic seen on screen.
