Shot on 35mm, “Arabesques on the Pirosmani Theme” is an original view of the naive work of the Georgian painter Niko Pirosmanichvili, commonly called Pirosmani. By a series of short scenes, played and composed on his paintings, the Armenian director Sergei Paradjanov (originally: Sargis Hovsepi Paradjanian) glorifies the life and work of the most famous Georgian artist.
Director: Sergei Parajanov.
Stunning tribute to Pirosmani by a great auteur! Thank you Jon for this hidden gem!
