ALL-NEW DCP RESTORATION! ► Wojciech Has’s mind-blowing counterculture classic was a favourite of Luis Buñuel and The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia! Adapted from Polish nobleman Jan Potocki’s 1813 novel, Saragossa relates the adventures, astounding and amorous, of one Alphonse van Worden, a Belgian officer making his way across battle-torn Spain. Entranced by a magical manuscript and two beautiful Moorish princesses, he is caught up in a surreal, supernatural, Arabian Nights-like chain of stories within stories within stories. Shot in stunning CinemaScope, with Polish screen legend Zbigniew Cybulski in the lead.
