             Movie ad, New York Times. On September 14, 1972, the startling Brazilian film The
             Case of the Naves Brothers (1967) had its quiet little American premiere at the Carn-
             egie Hall Cinema. Director Luiz Sergio Person’s grainy black-and-white cinema verite
             made the explicit torture of this brutal film a landmark in anti-government cinema.
             In the hardon helix between art and sex, The Naves Brothers enhanced the subtext
             and the actuality of real torture and S&M games played by some Drummer men. The
             Naves film, like its victims, has mysteriously disappeared.
