The film shows the
unique world of artist Sergei Parajanov, whose brilliant images in films
and collages aroused the suspicion of Soviet authorities. Unexpectedly,
this last all-embracing interview, given at the 1988 München Film
Festival, has become a film legacy.
Sergei Parajanov was
born an Armenian in Georgia. He studied at the Moscow Film School and
worked as a director in the Ukraine. His stylistic vitality and
“plasticism” - a term he used to describe his films - enabled him to
creative universal images.
