The Colour of Pomegranates
I found out this afternoon that one of my favourite films Parajanov's 'The Colour of Pomegranates' will be shown at this years London Film Festival (8th - 19th October). It will be shown at the BFI Southbank on Friday October 10th at 3.15pm and at Hackney Picture House on Sunday 12th October at 1.00pm. This is the restored original version. I will certainly make an effort to see it. Other highlights for me will be John Schlesinger's adaptation of Hardy's 'Far from the Madding Crowd' and Powell & Pressburger's 'The Tales of Hoffmann'. The bf is looking forward to the early British film: 'The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands' - a gala performance with a new score, by Simon Dobson, performed by The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines.
