A Wild Roomer
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.
Gi-hong works as a construction carpenter. He lives from contract to contract, inhabiting a big, mostly empty house in the suburbs, and befriending its owner and his wife. One day, the three of them discover a strange dent in the roof of Gi-hong's car. Gi-hong launches a private investigation to get to the bottom of the case. The answer to the mystery introduces a new character that will shake the foundations of the lives of Gi-hong and those around him.
Lee unravels his story unhurriedly, masterfully focusing on the awkwardness of daily human interactions in a way so funny and surprising that despite the visible inspiration with Lee Chang-dong's "Burning," "A Wild Roomer" remains a fresh and original voice of Korean independent cinema. Lee's mature debut received two awards at the Busan IFF, fueling the hopes of the director's prompt return to the film set.
Director, screenwriter, and editor. His first short film, the 2012 "No Cave," brought him the Best Picture award at Busan IFF. His next short, "The Girl Lives in Haeundae," was awarded at the Seoul Independent Film Festival on the same year. In 2014, he directed one of the parts of a novella film "Romance in Seoul." "A Wild Roomer" is his feature debut.
