Austin Film Society presents The Color of Pomegranates
Roaming blind angels with wooden wings, weeping book pages, and bleeding fruit – Sergei Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates is biography as intoxicating, opulent tableaux. The life of famed Armenian troubadour Sayat Nova unfolds as elusive, enthralling verse with dreamlike, stylistic flourishes of jump-cuts and a collage-like soundtrack. A film, at once modern and classic, completely untethered by time. Recently restored as close to the original as possible, The Color of Pomegranates is a fruit to be savored.
