Leonor Will Never Die
Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Leonor loves action movies to pieces. In the 1980s, she was a prominent filmmaker with a long list of blockbusters to her name. Today, she is broke and the pile of unpaid bills sucks out her will to live. Her only chance to get back in the saddle is a recently announced film script competition. Leonor dusts off her old unfinished project about the adventures of the brave Ronwaldo on a mission to avenge the death of his brother. A strange accident brings the writer and her protagonist closer than she ever thought possible.
Leonor Will Never Die is a uniquely original, bitter-sweet journey into the magical world of cinema. Cinema that is not always perfect, often exaggerated, but filled with exciting, unrestricted action, and immortal heroes who, even among flying bullets, always have the time for a biting comeback.
This narratively innovative story, seething with daring ideas, gleams with the debuting director’s purest love for life and the movies, especially the old Philippine action cinema.
