    TABU

    Miguel Gomes Portugal, 2012

    Miguel Gomes’s dazzling two-pronged tribute to old age, memory, & classic cinema is a bewitching, often funny journey with an atmosphere all its own. Like the ingenious Arabian Nights, Tabu is nearly impossible to categorize, but one thing’s for certain: it’s an arthouse high point of the 2010s.

    ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 1, THE RESTLESS ONE

    Miguel Gomes Portugal, 2015

    Three volumes, three unidentified filmic objects of uncommon beauty, and three instant classics of contemporary cinema. Miguel Gomes’ outstanding masterpiece takes over. A vision of modern Portugal told with the inspiration of the timeless folk tales of Arabian Nights.

    ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 2, THE DESOLATE ONE

    Miguel Gomes Portugal, 2015

    The second installment of Miguel Gomes’ magnum opus is arguably the most melancholic of the three. While the whole trilogy is a unique blend of fine irony, dark humor, blissful fantasy, and fervent commitment to the present, this middle section confirms Arabian Nights as the ultimate political film.

    ARABIAN NIGHTS: VOLUME 3, THE ENCHANTED ONE

    Miguel Gomes Portugal, 2015

    Who would have thought austerity measures could trigger such an epic tale of tales? Gomes explores Portugal’s fractures with unmatched originality, sharpness and love—both to his country and to the act (and art) of storytelling. This is the last volume, but we certainly wish it would go on forever.

    THE FACE YOU DESERVE

    Miguel Gomes Portugal, 2004

    Portuguese director Miguel Gomes emerged as a star on the 2000s festival circuit with offbeat, playful, inventively genre-bending visions like Tabu and Our Beloved Month of August. Here’s where he begins: a sweet, warped, colorful feature debut that took its director to Rotterdam.
