Sergei Parajanov, a Soviet Armenian film director, screenwriter, and artist; was born on January 9, 1924 and died on July 20, 1990. His films Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors and The Color of Pomegranates were fundamental contributions to international cinema.
He was an ethnic Armenian living in the multicultural city of Tbilisi, Georgia. Parajanov succeeded in developing a modest; but wonderful body of work influenced by a wide range of inspirations. Including folk art, mediaeval miniature painting, early cinema, Russian and European art films; surrealism, and cultural motifs from Armenia, Georgia, and Ukraine.
Sergei’s Work and Political Differences
His well-known films are seen rarely; but much admired and widely considered to be among the most important films of the twentieth century. Sergei Parajanov is substantially less well-known than his peers, despite his importance. Yet, all of them regard him as a genius and maestro of his art.
Janov was imprisoned three times for being gay; making problematic films for the Soviet authorities, and speaking out against the regime. During his time in prison, the legendary director experimented with collages, sketches, card games, and photomontages.
Parajanov was arrested again in February 1982. This time on bribery accusations, which coincided with his return to Moscow for the Taganka Theatre’s premiere of a piece; honouring Vladimir Vysotsky and was effected with some deception. Despite receiving yet another harsh sentence, he was released in less than a year, despite his health having deteriorated significantly.
The Magician’s to The Industry And Death
He could only return to directing in the mid-1980s, when the political situation began to ease. Even so, his recent feature films were only made; possible thanks to the support of prominent Georgian actor Dodo Abashidze and other friends.
Despite the fact that his craft drew a large following, his vision did not. He reportedly said, “Whoever tries to copy me is lost.”
