Films Of Sergei Paradjanov, The

Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors

Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors is a boldly conceived and astonishingly photographed blend of enchanting mythology, religious iconography, and pagan magic. And although its unsentimental depiction of the harsh realities of Russian regional history visionary director Sergei Pararadjanov (The Color of Pomegranates) into direct conflict with bureaucrats then controlling the Soviet film industry, the film became an international sensation when it was released in 1964.

Ashik Kerib

From Sergei Paradjanov (The Legend Of Suram Fortess, Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors) one of the most acclaimed and experimental directors of the Soviet cinema, comes Ashik Kerib, a 19th century romantic tale evocatively brought to life.

The Legend Of Suram Fortress

Inspired by an ancient Russian folk tale and adapted from the novella by Daniel Chongadze, The Legend Of Suram Fortress is a dazzling film by visionary director Sergei Paradjanov (Ashik Kerib, Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors).

The Color Of Pomegranates

Sergei Paradjanov (1924-1990) has been acclaimed as the greatest Russian filmmaker to appear since the golden age of Eisenstein and Dovzhenko. His baroque masterpiece, The Color Of Pomegranates, was banned in Russia for its religious sentiment and nonconformity to "Socialist realism"; its director, a tirelessly outspoken campaigner for human rights, was convicted on a number of trumped up charges and sentenced to five years of hard labor in the gulag. A wave of protest from the international film community led to his release in 1978.
