Press Play to start
At the 16th 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, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 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 Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Ayano and Koharu, two 27-year-olds from Tokyo, with budding careers in fashion and event industries, are nonchalantly speeding through life, using it to its fullest. Ayano's unexpected pregnancy and her decision to become a single parent will have a profound influence on every aspect of the protagonists' existence. The friends will have to reevaluate their lives to cope with the new situation.
In this intimate portrait of a female friendship, bringing to mind Noah Baumach's "Frances Ha," the director Hajime Tsuda grasped the complex emotional states caused by sudden life changes, often accompanied by nostalgia for the lost carelessness. His debut dazzles with the finesse of film techniques and elaborate frames glimmering with the full palette of colors, making "Daughters" a real aesthetic treat. Even though the film shows a world mostly from the perspective of the big city, it does not break with the important traditional aspect of Japanese art, which has always been saturated with references to nature. The work emanates sensitivity to the fleeting beauty of the changing seasons, creating a modern variation on this classic motif of Japanese culture.
Born in 1985, director and screenwriter, owner of the event company CHAMELEONS INC. In 2005, his short film debut "Paint the Sky" won a Tokyo Students Film Festival. "Daughters" is his feature film debut.
