The final part of Pasolini's Trilogy of Life series was two years in the making. The locations - Yemen Ethiopia Iran and Nepal - form a rich exotic backdrop to these tales of slaves and kings potions betrayals demons and most of all love and lovemaking in all its myriad forms.

Engrossing mysterious profound and liberating Arabian Nights is an exquisitely dreamlike sensuous and adult interpretation of the original folk tales presented here in a beautiful new High Definition restoration.

About the Director

Pier Paolo Pasolini was an Italian film director, poet, writer and intellectual. Pasolini distinguished himself as a poet, journalist, philosopher, linguist, novelist, playwright, filmmaker, newspaper and magazine columnist, actor, painter and political figure. He demonstrated a unique and extraordinary cultural versatility, becoming a highly controversial figure in the process. While his work remains controversial to this day, in the years since his death Pasolini has come to be valued by many as a visionary thinker and a major figure in Italian literature and art. Influential American literary critic Harold Bloom considers Pasolini to be a major European poet and a major voice in 20th-century poetry, including his works in his collection of the Western Canon.
