Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2015.
Summary This a monumental and dazzlingly original three-part film by Miguel Gomes (*Tabu*) 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. Official Selection at **Cannes FIlm Fesitval** and the **Toronto International Film Festival**. *"The films are enchanting for their irony, their humanity, and their reflexiveness."* - Bill Stamets, ***The Chicago Reader***
