Georgian Night: Wine + Paradjanov’s Legend of the Suram Fortress at Cinemateket
Dive into the mythic world of Sergej Paradjanov’s “The Legend of the Suram Fortress.“ The story is a retelling of a well-known Georgian folk-tale brought into written literature by the 19th-century writer Daniel Chonkadze: A young boy has to be immured into the walls of a fortress in order to stop it from crumbling to pieces.
“The Legend of the Suram Fortress“ is Sergei Parajanov’s first film after 15 years of censorship in the Soviet Union. To kick off the evening the Embassy of Georgia to the Kingdom of Denmark hosts a reception with Georgian wines and Georgian ambassador Gigi Gigiadze gives a short introduction to the film. From 8 pm, the film starts at 9.15 pm. Tickets cost 80 DKK.
