The Color of Pomegranates

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Sergei Parajanov, Sergei Parajanov
1969 / 79min / DCP

“The Color of Pomegranates is a film that I was recently introduced to by an artist friend. There are so many different techniques in it—stop-motion animation, silent film—and the way it tells the story feels like a poem. The muted color palette intensifies the experience of the central character [18th-century poet and troubadour Sayat-Nova], following them from childhood through adulthood and understanding their relationships to women. I’m still processing it because it’s so new; I definitely need to watch it multiple times, it’s wonderfully strange.”—Alexandria Smith
