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