Manage episode 339530302 series 3294027
Jackie and Greg discuss the crown jewel of Armenian Cinema, THE COLOR OF POMEGRANATES from 1969. Topics of discussion include the parallels between filmmaker Sergei Parajanov’s life and the poet Sayat Nova’s, the sensual nature of the film and its themes, and the cultural representation of Armenia and Transcaucasia. They are joined by Anahit Mikayelyan, Director of the Sergei Parajanov Museum in Yerevan, Armenia, for a deeper discussion into the life of the filmmaker.
