One of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, Sergei Parajanov’s “The Color of Pomegranates”, a biography of the Armenian troubadour Sayat Nova (King of Song) reveals the poet’s life more through his poetry than a conventional narration of important events in Sayat Nova’s life.

We see the poet grow up, fall in love, enter a monastery and die, but these incidents are depicted in the context of what are images from Sergei Parajanov’s imagination and Sayat Nova’s poems, poems that are seen and rarely heard. Sofiko Chiaureli plays 6 roles, both male and female, and Sergei Parajanov writes, directs, edits, choreographs, works on costumes, design and decor and virtually every aspect of this revolutionary work void of any dialog or camera movement.

    One of the great Soviet-era directors whose work I have never seen. This is such a rare event, I hope you’ll pick this cinephile for the experience.

    I’d love to go so that I can write a review on what a wonderful movie and experience I had and why Clinton Street Theater is one of the only places that don’t gouge you to see movies anymore. :-)

    The Color of Pomegranates is one of my all-time favorite films. I’ve seen it many times, but never on a big screen. I am so excited!!

    In Tbilisi, Georgia – the city where Parajanov was born – there’s a statue of the director attached to the side of a building. He’s leaping, smiling, coattails flapping – it looks like he’s flying. All of his films make me feel this way: flying frozen in place. Can’t wait to hit Clinton Street and see them on the big screen!

    I love this film, I would love to see it in a theater. My friend is a film major visiting from LA, and I WILL be taking him to see this! Thanks for the tip, and free tickets would be amazing!

    As a mom of a 9-month-old, I could really use some intellectual stimulation and some SILENCE. Please give these to me and let me have a blissful night out with a friend!
