Mutations: A Video Conversation with Miguel Gomes

At Cannes, we made a video interview with the director, discussing "Arabian Nights", shooting on film, his most unforgettable film and more.

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.
