This research aims to comprehend the creative process of the movie "Eles não usam black-tie" (They don't wear black-tie) (1981), directed by Leon Hirszman, based on the homonymic play written by Gianfrancesco Guarnieri, using the theoretical referential provided by "Procedural Critics" (as proposed by Cecilia Salles) and the documents related to the film creation, such as Arguments, scripts, Storyboard, among others. Considering the passage from the play text to the film as a process of "intersemiotic translation" (following R. Jakobson), or "transcriation" (as established by Haroldo de Campos), we propose an approximation to Hirszman's creative thought, artist witch, as Guarnieri, has marked the Brazilian political and cultural scenario from the last decades.
