Arabesques on the Pirosmani Theme

Framed by Parajanov’s look, Niko Pirosmani’s paintings are enlivened, juxtaposed and decomposed, following a by-chapter organisation that visits and intertwines his works like the arabesques in the tile. Exemplifying the perpetual movement cherished by the film-maker, the painter’s universe sneaks through a fantastic land, the antechamber of the capital of Georgia, which stands in the background. The film granted Parajanov an interesting Bright Future Award at Rotterdam.
