Ashik Kerib

აშიკ-ქერიბი

Soviet Union, 1988
Drama, Avant-Garde, History

Synopsis

Wandering minstrel Ashik Kerib falls in love with a rich merchant’s daughter, but is spurned by her father and forced to roam the world for a thousand and one nights – but not before he’s got the daughter to promise not to marry till his return.

Our take

The last completed work by Soviet filmmaker Sergei Parajanov (The Colour of Pomegranates) splendidly reimagines the traditions, customs and folklore of Azerbaijan in staggering and semi-surreal visual poetry. Richly drawn, and politically subversive, a stunning, sensational fairy tale.

Ashik Kerib Directed by Sergei Parajanov, Dodo Abashidze
