2. The Color of Pomegranates
by Sergei Parajanov
Sergei Parajanov, a Soviet citizen, was born in Georgia to Armenian parents, and lived for many years in Ukraine. The Color of Pomegranates, his second official film is a cinematic portrait of Sayat Nova, the important Armenian poet and musician from the 18th century. However, as an intertitle explains at the beginning, the film is not meant to capture the biographical details of his life so much as his “inner world”, using the images and metaphors of the Ashough (“medieval Armenian poet troubadours”)
