Dodo Abashidze

Director

The revered Georgian actor David “Dodo” Abashidze, who plays the roles of Osman-Agha and Simon the Piper in Parajanov’s film [ამბავი სურამის ციხისა], was designated as co-director. This credit was widely understood as a formality to help gain approval for the project, though Abashidze and Parajanov were good friends and their working collaboration continued with Ashik-Kerib.
