The Pomegranate Video Page

Initially it was my intention to do a nice little write-up about pomegranates, create a couple of videos, get into some of its health benefits, and then go off on a minor tangent and include a little discussion about the significance of Sergei Parajanov’s 1968 Soviet-Armenian psychedelic film, “The Color of Pomegranates” (imdb, full movie linked below):
One of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, Sergei Parajanov's ‘Color of the Pomegranate,’ a biography of the Armenian troubadour Sayat Nova (King of Song) reveals the poet's life more through his poetry than a conventional narration of important events in Sayat Nova's life. We see the poet grow up, fall in love, enter a monastery and die, but these incidents are depicted in the context of what are images from Sergei Parajanov's imagination and Sayat Nova's poems, poems that are seen and rarely heard. Sofiko Chiaureli plays 6 roles, both male and female, and Sergei Parajanov writes, directs, edits, choreographs, works on costumes, design and decor and virtually every aspect of this revolutionary work void of any dialog or camera movement.”

That was the initial intention, but I sort of went a little ballistic on the video aspect of the project. Since the videos say and share as much if not more than what my initial intensions were for that phase, I figured I’d end it here and just create a Playlist linking to all the pomegranate videos I ended up putting together. It was a fun little project and I hope you enjoy. Peace.
