Sergei Parajanov's celebrated masterwork The Colour Of Pomegranates paints an astonishing portrait of the 18th century Armenian poet Sayat Nova, the 'King of Song' and now arrives on Blu-ray for the first time, presented in a stunning new restoration by Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation World Cinema Project and Cineteca di Bologna/L'Immagine Ritrovata laboratory, in association with the National Cinema Centre of Armenia and Gosfilmofond of Russia.

One of cinema's most revered and beautiful films this masterpiece is not a conventional biography but a cinematic expression of Sayat Nova's work, resulting in an extraordinary visual poem.
