Nṛan guyně( Visual )

1 edition published in 2018 in Armenian and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A breathtaking fusion of poetry, ethnography, and cinema, Sergei Parajanov's masterwork overflows with unforgettable images and sounds. In a series a tableaux that blend the tactile with the abstract, The Color of Pomegranites revives the splendors of Armenian culture through the story of the eighteenth-century troubadour Sayat-Nova, charting his intellectual, artistic, and spiritual growth through iconographic compositions rather than traditional narrative. The film's tapestry of folklore and metaphor departed from the realism that dominated the Soviet cinema of its era, leading authorities to block its distribution, with rare underground screenings presenting it in a restructured form. This edition features the cut closest to Parajanov's original vision, in a restoration that brings new life to one of cinema's most enigmatic meditations on art and beauty"--Container

The color of pomegranates by Sergei Paradjanov( Visual )

2 editions published in 1972 in Armenian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Paradzhanov's masterpiece was censored and recut due to its unabashed celebration of Armenian folklore and religious tradition, aspects of which were seen as divergent from Soviet efforts to unify the proletariat into a great undifferentiated mass. The Color of Pomegranates celebrates the life of the Armenian poet Aruthin Sayadin who lived in the 18th century and was known as the King of Song. It depicts the poet's life in eight sections, filled with symbols of the sacred and secular life of Armenian culture. The Color of Pomegranates constitutes a hymn to Armenian literature, music and painting, and the rituals of the Armenian church. Completed in 1969, it was quickly discarded by Soviet authorities, reworked and censored by Sergei Yutkevitch and finally released in the Soviet Union in 1972. Like Sergei Eisenstein who he was often compared to, Paradzhanov's artistic temperament consistently brought him into conflict with Soviet bureaucracy. Two years after the release of The Color of Pomegranates, he was sentenced to prison for five years on charges of homosexuality, dealing in stolen art and anti-Soviet agitation. An international campaign to secure his release was eventually successful, resulting in his release in 1978. After leaving prison Paradzhanov continued to face harassment by Soviet police and at one point was reduced to begging on the streets in order to survive
