The film was produced by the Film Club of Belem, a non-profit organization, and the financing has been possible thanks to exceptional screenings at the Film Club. The Film library of Rio Modern Art Museum also contributed to this production, which did not receive any public subsidy.
The title we have chosen is a compound word hinting at the sol-fa an its signs, the notes. The main character, by dealing with those signs, that is to say by playing different notes with his own hands, exerts an influence which releases the dreams of others – their different levels constitues the very theme of the film.
