Description Technical Specs
The exotic world of expatriate American writer Paul Bowles (The Sheltering Sky) is brought to the screen in this beautifully photographed anthology based on three of his short stories. Bowles introduces each story and narrates the first. "Merkala Beach", "Call at Corazon", and "Allal" are all haunting, enigmatic tales that capture the essence of Bowles' vision of humanity and his love of strange, colorful locales. In English, Arabic, and Berber with English subtitles.
