Director's Note:

"The black-and-white film has been lost ever since. Almost as if it were on purpose at the end of last year, on a day I had been going through some of my old film cans, there it was, whole and in perfect state, "Pixinguinha's film". What could I say then about those six minutes of the Velha Guarda do Samba, which, as far as I know, is the only existing footage of the group. The fourth centennial festivities, Ibirapuera Park; all of this, fifty years later, becomes more important. Since I did not do any sound recording, only images were documented The Moreira Salles Institute identified the songs that were being played by the musicians C'Ele e Eu" e "Patrao prenda seu gado") and added sound to the film. Recordings from that period were used, along with the participation of Teco Cardoso and Betinho Sodre".
