Arabian Nights: Volume 1 — The Restless One

When: Sat., Feb. 6 2016

Portuguese director Miguel Gomes started making movies about ten years ago with his first feature, The Face You Deserve, a film about a children's entertainer who struggles with coming to terms with his 30th birthday. Gomes' latest effort, Arabian Nights, clocks in at 381 minutes so the director has broken it into three parts. The film centers on Portugal's struggles with European leaders who don't understand its people or culture. Part 1 makes its Cleveland premiere tonight at 6:45 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. It screens again at 8:15 on Sunday night. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
