    Life100LogoThe Brand Associates are proud to present  The Color of Pomegranates (1968), a film written and directed by celebrated filmmaker Sergei Parajanov. The film is a biography of the Armenian balladeer Sayat-Nova that attempts to reveal the poet's life visually and poetically rather than literally.  Master of Italian cinema Michelangelo Antonioni said that "Parajanov’s Color of Pomegranates is of a stunningly perfect beauty. Parajanov…is one of best film directors in the world.”  The film will be followed by a reception to mark the closing of the landmark life100 exhibition.
