Previous to the lectures THE BEAMCLUB presents :


                Ashik Kerib (aka Ashug-Karibi):                 by Sergei Paradjanov                            1988 - 75 min.                                         &                 The Color Of Pomegranates                            1969                 Short Clip from Sergei Paradjanov's  'Sayat Nova'

In recounting Lermontov's fable a wandering minstrel Ashik Kerib falls in love with a rich merchant's daughter, but is spurned by her father and forced to roam the world for a thousand and one nights - but not before he's got the daughter to promise not to marry till his return. It's told in typical Paradjanov style, in a series of visually ravishing 'tableaux vivants'  and are combined with intertitles, images of early Russian artwork overlaid with Turkish and Azerbaijani folksongs as well as other European musicial motifs.

" The Color of the Pomegranate", is 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 using very little dialogue.

His baroque masterpiece, "Sayat Nova", was banned in Russia in 1968 for its religious sentiment and nonconformity to "Socialist realism"; and in 1969 it was re-edited/censored and renamed, The Color Of Pomegranates. After years of intrigue and suspicion, Parajanov was arrested in Kiev on 17 December 1973 and was convicted on a number of trumped up charges, the charges were given as "business with art objects, leaning towards homosexuality, incitement to suicide, and black-marketing" and sentenced to five years of hard labor in the Gulag. A wave of protest from the international film community led to his release in 1978. On 11 February 1982, he was arrested again by the KGB,"for bribing a public official" to help a nephew gain entrance to the university, and detained in the Voroshilovgrad prison until November 1982. After 15 years on a blacklist, Parajanov received the support of Eduard Shevarnadze, First Secretary of the Georgian Communist Party, to make the feature The Legend of Suram Fortress(1985), co-directed by actor Dodo Abakhidze, and the documentary Arabesques on the Theme Pirosmani (1986) at the Gruziafilm Studio in Tbilisi. His last film, Ashik Kerib (1988), a Georgian-Armenian-Azerbaijan co-production,  received limited release. Sergei Parajanov died in July 1990 at the age of 66.



Studium Generale  invited American filmmaker Tina Bastaijan to screen her personal selection of films and documentaries related to World of Nearness.
