Dreaming & Dying
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.
Three friends, who were once more than that, meet years later to reminisce about the olden days. Diving back into the past leads them deep into the surprising corners of their memories, and their alcohol-enhanced minds color reality with unexpected, oneiric hues. Hidden emotions, old grudges, and romantic disappointments begin to resurface.
Nelson Yeo's debut is a modern take on the 1948 Chinese classic "Springtime in a Small Town." The story is reimagined in the Singaporean context and enclosed in the space of the cult Haw Par Villa entertainment park. "Dreaming & Dying" is a mixture of a fairy tale, a pastiche of artistic cinema, and a deeply personal story filled with the director's past, deep sadness, and the mistakes of adolescence. In the interviews, Yeo says that the making of the film was directly inspired by a memory of his first cigarette.
Visual artist and film director, graduate of the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, creator of many short films shown at festivals around the world. His debut feature, "Dreaming & Dying," premiered at Locarno IFF where Yeo received the prestigious Concorso Cineasti del presente award.
