WHAT THEY SAY
ABOUT THE FILM
THE DREAM OF SHAHRAZAD is a feature-length documentary film that brings together the famous story collection THE 1001 (or “ARABIAN”) NIGHTS with recent political events in Egypt, Turkey and Lebanon… Description The “Arab Spring” of early 2011 was a momentous global event, raising great hopes for anyone interested in the forward march of humanity. No one, however, is yet sure about the meaning or consequences of these events… THE DREAM OF SHAHRAZAD is a feature-length documentary film which locates the Egyptian revolution – and also recent political changes in Turkey and Lebanon – within a broader historical and cultural framework: that of storytelling and music.
