New Asian Cinema

Once Upon a Time in , dir. Aditya Vikram Sengupta, India 2021

The competition section, this year judged by an international People's Jury. Films representing a wide spectrum of new productions and fresh voices of contemporary East and Southeast Asian cinemas, titles using surprising forms and commenting on current events – including film made during the pandemic.

New Asian Cinema section presents films which show the modern reality of the continent in particularly brave and interesting ways, exploring interpersonal relations, cultural tensions and the topical issues faced by the world. This is why this year's selection includes "The 12 Day Tale of the Monster That Died in 8," a lyrical diary from the beginning of the pandemic, made by the Japanese master Shunji Iwai.

Coming to Five Flavours right after its premiere in Venice is "Once Upon A Time In Calcutta," whose nostalgic, mysterious plot, revolving around complex human relationships made the critics think of the films by Wong Kar Wai and the oneiric atmosphere of the series "Twin Peaks." Phenomena eluding rationality are, in turn, one of the key themes of "The Story of Southern Islet," a story of a spiritual journey of a woman from the borderlands.

The competition section will also include many stories about families. One of them is the subversive Singaporean "Number One," a story of a middle-aged man who, in order to maintain his social status, becomes a manager of a drag music club.
