The halfway mark of the 15th Five Flavours – Heated debates about competition films

23 November 2021

The Festival has reached its halfway point, but many fascinating meetings with authors of New Asian Cinema competition films are still to come. On Wednesday, the international People's Jury will announce their verdict!

People's Jury is a group of Asian film and cultures enthusiasts, chosen from among entries from four European countries – Finland, Holland, Poland and Italy. The twelve jurors came to Warsaw to participate in workshops and discuss the Festival films together.

The Jury will announce their verdict on Wednesday, November 24, at 8:30 p.m. in Kino Muranów, during the award ceremony. After the screening, enjoy refreshments from ChaiKola & ChaiMate and a glass of Choya wine.

The Tuesday guest of the studio is Maung Sun, director of the film "Money Has Four Legs." We ask him about the situation in Burma and the making of his uniquely creative production, leading us through contemporary Yangon.

Burmese cinema has long traditions, but almost since the beginning of its existence, it has been struggling with various political complications. In his cinephile drama "Money Has Four Legs," Maung Sun returns to its roots, showing the story of an ambitious director who wants to remake a classic film, but nothing seems to be going his way. The protagonist's struggles reveal the contemporary reality of Yangon – a diverse, intriguing city, whose inhabitants always find a way to deal with the challenges of everyday life.

Wednesday will be our chance to ponder on time and memory – our studio will host the author of another competition title, "The Anatomy of Time." Jakrawal Nilthamrong will talk about the unique structure of his film, contemporary Thai cinema, and combining the experiences of a visual artist with film directing.

On Thursday, the studio invites you for a meeting with Shunji Iwai, one of the most original contemporary Japanese filmmakers, winning over the audiences' hearts since the 1990s with his lyrical movies capturing the essence of their times. We will ask the director about the relationship between poetry and pop culture, and about the making of this unique, lockdown project "The 12 Day Tale of the Monster That Died in 8."
