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.
Yu returns to his home island of Hainan after spending ten years behind bars. He is planning to get back together with his former partner, a beautiful hairdresser who works hard to support her and her daughter. Will they be able to forget about the past and rekindle the flame of their old love after so many years apart? Can they build a happy home in one of the hundreds of concrete skyscrapers towering over the island's lush greenery?
In the eye of the camera, a place associated with mass tourism and raging developers looks like the time-frozen remains of the apocalypse. "Absence" registers the process of decay in the space surrounding the protagonists in an expressive visual style, revealing the sensitivity and unique talent of the director whose debut assured his place among the top Chinese arthouse filmmakers. The film stars Lee Kang-sheng, known mostly from films by Tai Ming-liang, and Meng Li – an actress at the brink of a spectacular career who enchanted the Chinese audiences with her role in the hit series "The Bad Kids."
The screening will be accompanied by a screening of "Short Story" - the director's 2023 short film.
Chinese director born in 1991 in Yiyang. He studied sculpting, but later focused on his work as a lecturer, documentarian, and ad director. In 2021, his short feature "Absence" was screened a ta number of world film festivals, including Cannes. Wu worked with the same acting team on the 2023 "Absence," his feature debut.
