Arabian Nights (Blu-ray)
Directed by Miguel Gomes
Joana De Verona
Arabian Nights is a monumental and dazzlingly original three-part film by Miguel Gomes (Tabu) that uses the structure of one thousand and one nights in order to tell the story of contemporary Portugal. Gomesâ€™ scheherazade tells fantastic tales both fictional and documentary, from talking roosters to the everyday trials of the unemployed. Gomes weaves a colorful, surreal, and politically potent palimpsest of a film that captures how the great recession has affected both our lives and our dreams.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
5.1 Surround Sound, Booklet with Production Diary and an Essay by Dennis Lim, New York Film Festival: A Conversation with Miguel Gomes, Redemption (2013), a short film by Miguel Gomes, Trailer
