In our next meetup of Hiwar Art Club we are pleased to invite you to the film screening of “The Color of Pomegranates”. This film is considered as one of the masterpieces of writer and director Sergei Parajanov as he depicts the life of revered the 18th-century Armenian poet and musician Sayat-Nova. Portraying events in the life of the artist from childhood up to his death, the movie addresses in particular his relationships with women, including his muse Sofiko Chiaureli. The production tells Sayat-Nova’s dramatic story by using both his poems and largely still camerawork, creating an impressionistic work.

The film has appeared in some scholarly polls of the greatest films ever made. It has also been recognized for its great influence on the fields of video art, performance and other forms of contemporary visual arts.

The film screening is in Armenian and will be played with English subtitles. The duration of the film it is 1:15 hr, to be followed by a group discussion. Join us at 6 PM, Saturday 30/3/2019 At the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts – Building #2.
