Il fiore delle Mille e Una Notte
Interlocking tales of sexual desire, gender masquerade, vaulting ambition and cruel punishment.
The most beautiful panel of the ‘Trilogy of Life’ is also the most dreamlike. No author-figure this time, just a multiplicity of interlocking tales of sexual desire, gender masquerade, vaulting ambition and cruel punishment. In place of theology, there’s magic (including a homage to The Thief of Bagdad) – plus a range of exquisite settings from the Middle East across to Nepal and a fantastically lovely cast.
The screening on Tuesday 23 April will be introduced by Ninetto Davoli.
