Following the U.S. Premieres of all three volumes in Miguel Gomes's Arabian Nights at the 53rd New York Film Festival, the Portuguese director discussed his epic at a free NYFF Live talk.
In 2012, Portuguese director Miguel Gomes’s Tabu screened as part of the NYFF. This year, he returns with a trio of films—Arabian Nights: Volume 1, The Restless One, Arabian Nights: Volume 2, The Desolate One, and Arabian Nights: Volume 3, The Enchanted One—all making their U.S. premieres. These works, among the most talked about new films at the Cannes Film Festival this year, are based on One Thousand and One Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern, West Asian, and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. Gomes will discuss his trilogy at NYFF Live.
