Description

SATURDAY 5 MAY 5.30PM
THE COLOR OF POMEGRANATES
Dir: Sergei PARAJANOV | USSR | Armenian, Georgian and Russian with English subtitles | 1969 | 77 min | UC18+
Main Theatre

Sergei Parajanov was exiled to Armenia where he made The Color of Pomegranates. Confiscated and recut by Soviet censors, it was not until 2015 that the director’s original vision finally emerged. It depicts the life of revered 18th-century Armenian poet and musician Sayat-Nova. “If The Colour of Pomegranates were a building, it would be a world heritage site.” (Tony Rayns).

Introduction by John McDonald. Restored in 2014 by Cineteca di Bologna/L’immagine ritrovata and The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project, in association with the National Cinema Centre of Armenia and Gosfilmofond of Russia. Restoration funding provided by the Material World Charitable Foundation and The Film Foundation.




Join us for a celebration of screen heritage and preservation, with a showcase of recently restored and archival films.

Over five days, Cinema Reborn, presented in partnership with AFTRS, will screen 16 feature films to shine a light on the long history of the art of cinema and film restoration and the treasures that exist in the world's film archives.
