The Legend of Suram Fortress/Ashik Kerib
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Sergei Paradjanov


This double feature of films by acclaimed Russian director Sergei Paradjanov contains both THE LEGEND OF SURAM FORTRESS and ASHIK KERIB.

ASHIK KERIB, based on Mikhail Lermontov's fable, follows the wandering minstrel Ashik Kerib as he journeys for 1000 days and nights, trying to earn enough money to marry his beloved. Paradjanov blends early Russian artwork, minutely choreographed sequences, and traditional and contemporary music to produce an astonishing film that eschews traditional narrative for a more unique, expressive style.
