Dir. Sergei Paradjanov and David Abashidze

Soviet Union 1988 | Colour | 78 mins | Drama

Cast: Yuri Mgoyan, Veronika Metonidze, Levan Natroshvili

Paradjanov’s last completed film is told in the style of Azerbaijani folklore, with a heavy focus on colour and music and very little dialogue. An exploration of the things we do for love, this is a heavily stylised and sumptuous depiction of the culture, music and dance of Azerbaijan.
