Iberê had an 8 mm film projector and collected films to show to friends in his studio. Before the film there was a western series (mostly silent and featuring Chaplin, Tom Mix, Ken Mayanard, Elmo Lincoln, John Barrymore, and other stars), wich was his favourite programme. In 1989 some of the films in his collection, such as silent-movie series, inspired him to make a series of drawings.
