Arabian Nights

(Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1973–74)

Tue, Feb 18, 2014 7 PM

Adapted from the ancient Arabic anthology The Book of the One Thousand and One Nights, Arabian Nights follows the mostly erotic adventures of a young man in search of his abducted slave girl, who escapes, disguises herself as a man, and becomes the ruler of a far-off land. The third installment in Pasolini’s Trilogy of Life is as replete with nudity, sex, and slapstick humor as the first two. (129 mins., 35mm)
