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.
Once every couple of years, a rare species of cicadas appears near a catholic village in North-East India. The insects are considered an exotic delicacy, and the night hunts for them are an important part of the collective practice. The village harmony is disrupted when children start disappearing during the hunts. The local pastor sees it as a sign of an upcoming apocalypse that will be fulfilled after the darkness will take over the surrounding forest for 80 days. We are seeing the disturbing events from the point of view of the 10-year-old Kasan, suffering from night blindness. For him, the encounter with the darkness will also be a confrontation with his own imagination. All fears grow bigger at night, and the only thing that can overcome it is keeping calm and having a community to lean on.
Dominic Sangma's film, which premiered in Locarno, is an exploration of the nature of human fears, materializing in the collective paranoia. Even though we see the world through the eyes of a child, the real protagonist of the movie is the community whose life is controlled by a religious narration and the fear of Other. Here, Christianity is intertwined with local beliefs, allowing Sangma's story to keep leading the audiences astray, leaving them feeling lost. The result is a fascinating, visually impressive portrait of the dichotomy of the safe "here" and the "there" shrouded in darkness.
