Taking the Horse to Eat Jalebis
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.
Old Delhi, once the grand capital of precolonial India, is now a district of Delhi, filled with contrasts and a specific atmosphere. This is the hunting ground of thieves who know their city almost as well as other people's pockets. But times change and the urban jungle is getting ever harder to navigate – at some point, one has to turn the corner. The thieves turn into tour guides, showing the tourists around the district in ways defying stereotypes. The camera follows Patru, one of the pickpockets, who has been living off the Old Delhi for many years.
Anamika Haksar's debut, woven from dreams, tidbits of poetry, documents and legends, resonates like an urban symphony, reflecting the eclectic nature of the old capital. On the one hand, it is a set of stories within stories, praising the romantic myth of a thief. On the other, an anthropological record based on conversations with city locals, the guardians of its former glory. This is a film that defies categorization, evolves, lets the audiences wander around like lost wayfarers, meandering between dream and reality, night and day, the past and the present. Thus, Haksar creates a personal love letter to the Old Delhi, shedding light on things such as its palette of aromas and its claustrophobic crowdedness.
Theater and film director. In 1995, she received a special Sanskriti award for creating a new language in Indian theater. In 2016, at the invitation of the Kochi Biennale, she created the improvised stage installation "Composition on Water," a record of memories connected to political oppression. To make her film debut, she spent many years looking for producers and being constantly rejected. She ended up selling her house to get the money for the production.
