North Korean Cinema
The 10th edition of the festival will be a unique opportunity to see the key productions from North Korea, the most enigmatic Asian cinematography. The screenings at Five Flavours are the only chance to see these fascinating films on a big screen! The program includes two spectacular gems of North Korean cinema from the crucial year 1986, and two contemporary ones, showcasing the wide variety of contemporary productions. They attest to the universality of the language of cinema and the moving stories it can produce, even if they are made in such a different reality. It is also a starting point for the debate on the role of cinema in the historical politics of the country.
