After premiering his three-part film Arabian Nights
over a week at the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes, I had a chance to sit down and discuss the film with its director, Miguel Gomes. (For impressions of each part as it played at the festival, see Volume 1: The Restless One
; Volume 2: The Desolate One
; Volume 3: The Enchanted One
Many thanks to my colleague and friend Chiara Marañón, who shot and edited the conversation.
