Sapovnela
OTAR IOSSELIANI (1959) -16' 23''

 

"Sapovnela" means "the flower that nobody can find." We present this film without subtitles (the voiceover was forced on us by the censorship in the Soviet times but the film was banned anyway due to its ending). This was my first attempt at combining music and colors. Also, this is a story about the old florist Mikhail Mamulashvili who created wonderful compositions in his small garden.
