Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2015.
Summary Part two of Miguel Gomes' monumental and dazzlingly original three-part update of the Middle Eastern folk tale, *One Thousand and One Nights*. In which Scheherazade tells of how desolation invaded men: It hath reached me, O auspicious King, that a distressed judge will cry instead of giving out her sentence on a night when all three moons are aligned. A runaway murderer will wander through the land for over forty days and will tele transport himself to escape the Police while dreaming of prostitutes and partridges. A wounded cow will reminisce about a thousand-year-old olive tree while saying what she must say, which will sound none less than sad! The residents of a tower block in the suburbs will save parrots and piss inside lifts while surrounded by dead people and ghosts; including in fact a dog that... And seeing the morning break, Scheherazade fell silent. Damned tales! If things continue this way my daughter will surely end up with her throat slit! the Grand-Vizier, Scheherazade's father, thinks in his palace in Baghdad. 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***
