The Color of Pomegranates

The Color of Pomegranates is a biography of the Armenian ashug Sayat Nova (King of Song) that attempts to reveal the poet’s life visually and poetically rather than literally. The film depicts the poet’s coming of age, discovery of the female form, falling in love, entering a monastery and dying, all framed through both Sergei Parajanov’s imagination and Sayat Nova’s poems. Actress Sofiko Chiaureli notably plays six roles in the film, both male and female.
