Movie Still Monday: The Color of Pomegranates
Sergei Parajanov’s 1968 masterpiece The Color of Pomegranates (Sayat Nova) is not only one of the best films I’ve ever seen, it is also one of the most craft-laden films I have ever seen!
It’s got tatting!
Some holier than thou knitting angels (work those toe-up socks, kids!)…
…complete with their “close-knit” family members.
It even features the yarn making process, beginning with the fleece…
…up to the dyeing process.
And, of course, more hanks of yarn than you can shake a kemenche at.
Haven’t sufficiently whetted your appetite? Watch the блин trailer:
