In Broad Daylight
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.
When Kay, the granddaughter of one of the residents, arrives at the nursing home, she causes quite a stir. It is not often that anyone visits the elderly inhabitants. But the woman is not telling the truth. She is not a family member, but an investigative journalist who received a tip-off about serious irregularities at the institution that affect its ailing residents. The following investigation is frowned upon by virtually everyone – no one is truly interested in revealing the truth about the institutions created to "solve the problem" of the elderly. On top of that, Kay newspaper's investigative branch is about to be closed. Will the disillusioned protagonist, played by the magnetic Jennifer Yu, find the motivation to overcome the general apathy and expose the truth about the care system?
The contemporary Hong Kong cinema is increasingly engaged in portraying the current social issues. Lawrence Kan found the idea for the plot of his second movie in the surrounding reality. He approached the difficult, delicate subject with a journalistic rapacity, without giving up on the distinct visual aspects of the movie. He also assured the respect for the vulnerable people who, for the comfort of others, have been pushed to the margins of society.
Graduated from a film school in Vancouver. He debuted in 2013 with "When C Goes with G7." In 2021 he directed a TV series "In Geek We Trust." "In Broad Daylight" is his second feature.
