Preview: Arabian Nights Volume 1 – The Restless One

Sunday 06 March 2016, 18:00 to 20:10

Preview film screening

A magnificent, ambitious and timely undertaking, Miguel Gomes' Arabian Nights is a freewheeling baroque masterpiece. Loosely structured around the story of the same name, in which beautiful young Scheherazade embarks on a storytelling marathon to keep her husband from killing her, Gomes'Arabian Nights moves from outright – often outlandish – fiction to the present of neoliberal austerity politics, building real satire on its wayward course.

(NB This screening at the Watershed is not included in the Parallel ticket price but a concessionary rate will be charged to attendees who present their pass at Watershed).
