Your Mother’s Son
Press Play to start
At the 17th 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, 14 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 14, 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 those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
You can use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Sarah and her son Emman live in a small town they moved to a couple years before. She spends all her time working – teaching online and making dessert popular in the local community. The son is less ambitious – he lost his job, sleeps in, and secretly meets up with Amy, his mother's helper, and the two of them get high together. Emman knows Sarah can never know about his romance. What will happen when the secret is revealed? Will the family stay together?
Jun Robles Lana, the controversial master of Filipino cinema well-known to the Five Flavours audiences, once again invites us on a perverse journey through the labyrinth of human lies and passions. Everyone here has something to hide and is ready to use even the most immoral means to secure their position. This intense, shocking picture, thick with relationship interactions, will cause many an outcry and trigger lots of heated conversations long after the screening ends.
