Directed by Miguel Gomes

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. Gomes’ 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.

DVD 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
