Pier Paolo Pasolini

Arabian Nights

Il fiore delle Mille e Una Notte

Interlocking tales of sexual desire, gender masquerade, vaulting ambition and cruel punishment.

Italy-France 1974
Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini
With Ninetto Davoli, Ines Pellegrina, Franco Citti, Franco Merli
Running time 130 min
18

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.
