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 to tell the story of contemporary Portugal. Gomes tells fantastic tales that blur the line between fiction and documentary, taking his audience on a journey that ranges from talking roosters to the everyday trials of the unemployed. Arabian Nights is one of the most talked about films on the festival circuit and at just shy of six hours it is sure to challenge and provoke even the most seasoned cinephile.
