All Nudity Shall Be Punished (Silver Bear, Berlin, 1973).
October fifteenth's screening will be hosted by City University of New York Professor Jerry Carlson.
Based on Rodrigues play of the same title, ALL NUDITY SHALL BE PUNISHED tells the story of despondent widower Herculano who has promised never to remarry. His son, Serginho is the self-appointed guardian of his father's celibacy. When Herculano's brother introduces him to a lively prostitute and nightclub singer he is smitten, and brings her home to live with him, unwittingly creating a menage á trois with his own son and wreaking havoc on the entire household. Much of the film's humor revolves around Herculano's need to make everything look right and proper to his bourgeois neighbours and friends.
