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.
An older man, Vavachan Mestrhiri, dies in the coastal village of Chellanam in the south of India. The matter of his burial ignites a conflict within the small community. In just two evenings, it will move through the picturesque village like a hurricane, shaking it to the core and bringing out the worst in its people.
"R.I.P." marks a fundamental change in Pellissery's style. Previously he was know in Kerala mostly for his romantic comedies. In "R.I.P." he leaves generic schemes behind and comes up with a unique, personal language. For the first time, the director composes the stunning images of chaos, featuring dozens of people. The mastery of the scenes is particularly impressive since most of the actors on set are just regular Chellanam inhabitants. Surrealist and hypnotic, the film is the first part of an informal trilogy followed by "Jallikattu" and "Churuli" (both were shown at Five Flavours) and is still consideredto be the director's masterpiece.
Lijo Jose Pellissery
Born in Kerala in 1979. Considered to be one of the leading filmmakers of Mollywood – Malayalam-language cinema. He debuted in 2010 with the crime film "Nayakan." Since then, he was developing his individual style that includes polyphonic group scenes, aesthetization of violence, and the original, experimental narration. He is currently working on a big-budget historic film that will probably open a new chapter in his career.
