THE COLOUR OF POMEGRANATES is a subtitled performance drama and biography of the Armenian troubadour, Sayat Nova (King of Song), featuring a series of vignettes on the poet’s life and work.

Violence

Scenes of animal slaughter include a ram being held by a man carrying a knife and several dead sheep hanging up and being butchered for their meat. Another scene shows numerous headless chickens running around with some blood on the floor as they flutter. However, no animal cruelty is depicted.

There is brief breast nudity in a performance art context and a naked infant seen in passing during a baptism.
