Tyneside Cinema is known for hosting some of cinema’s hidden gems, and Arabian Nights, while talked up massively at the last Cannes Film Festival, has swept under the radar of others. The trilogy of movies is an ambitious piece of film making, and all three films can be seen at Tyneside Cinema starting Tuesday 26th April.

The satirical and unconventional Portugese adaptation of the classic Arabian Nights stories starts with Arabian Nights: Volume 1 – The Restless One from Tuesday 26th April, with Volume 2 from Saturday 30th April and it all closes with Volume 3, with screenings from Saturday 7th May. Director Miguel Gomes tells an honest story of Portugal in his re-imagining of these tales; in a passionate and fascinating trio of films, that could prove to be a landmark moment in political cinema.

Arabian Nights is at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle from Tuesday 26th April.
