"The director builds a house, and the cinematographer paints that house" Pavel Kostomarov

“Once I saw my classmate’s small camera, and asked myself why I had no camera”, confessed director Pavel Kostomarov. “Later, I bought a camera and was completely engaged with photography”. Cinematographer and director Pavel Kostomarov presents his Together in the International documentary competition of the 7th GOLDEN APRICOT Festival. The film is about love and harmony.

“When one is a director it is difficult to do cinematography”, said Pavel Kostomarov. “The director builds a house, and the cinematographer is the one who paints that house, and he must not paint the house, and it is often difficult, because the cinematographer thinks that the house is not built properly and might collapse”.

It is Pavel Kostomarov’s first visit to Armenia, and he has already managed to visit Sergey Parajanov’s museum. He is much impressed by the energy he got from his visit to the museum and confessed that a director must turn his life into an art.
