The Legend Of Suram Fortress

Directed by Sergei Paradjanov

Release: 1985
Runtime: 89
Country: Russia
Language: Georgian w/English subt.
(The Legend of Suram Fortress) - Based on an ancient legend, this dazzling film by visionary director Sergei Paradjanov (Ashik Kerib, Shadows Of Our Forgotten Ancestors) is a surreal ode to Georgian warriors throughout the ages who died for their country. Repeated efforts by the Georgian people to construct a defensive stronghold continually fail. The building collapses until a fortune teller remembers an old prophecy that the son of her erstwhile lover must be bricked up alive in order for the fortress to stand. The young man is faced with the prospect of sacrificing himself to save his country.
