New Release: Arabian Nights Volume 1: The Restless One says
Directed by Miguel Gomes
Portugal, 2015, DCP, 125 min

--------------------------------------------

"It is at once affectionate and disdainful of humanity, compassionate and glib, opaque yet relentlessly blunt." - Farihah Zaman, Reverse Shot

A filmmaker, played by Portuguese auteur Miguel Gomes himself, flees his movie set and turns over the reins to Arabian Nights storyteller Scheherazade, who relates tales with meanings both profound and satirical. A highly ambitious follow-up to Gomes' acclaimed TABU, THE ARABIAN NIGHTS TRILOGY is a deeply moving, beautiful and frequently hilarious experience. In Part One Scheherazade relates to us the stories of a clique of international bankers struck with a demotivational case of priapism and a rooster placed on trial for crowing, among others tales.

PLEASE NOTE: Miguel Gomes' ARABIAN NIGHTS TRILOGY in its entirety will screen twice. VOLUME 1 screens April 8th and April 18th, VOLUME 2 screens April 10th and April 22nd, and VOLUME 3 screens April 13th and April 24th.
