Press Play to start
The 15th edition of the Five Flavours Asian Film Festival will feature, for the first time, a seat reservation system at cinema screenings for holders of passes and stationary accreditations. 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, 16 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 16, 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 Wong Kar Wai'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.
In a small village hidden among the hills and the lush, green jungle of southern India, a mighty bull escapes the butcher's sword. Enraged, it is spreading fear and destruction. The rebellious animal is followed by furious, humiliated, hungry mob whose animalistic instincts are slowly waking up. The animosities, resentments and accusations between them will make it impossible for the villagers to work together. The chase turns into a violent, brutal rivalry between men, and the film becomes an allegory of people's battle against nature and each other.
The way Lijo Jose Pellissea controls the chaos he creates on the screen is very unique. The ecstatic frames, rhythmically edited to a vivid soundtrack, from the very beginning fill "Jalikattu" with the primal energy rarely seen on the big screens. Delving into this unique aesthetic and experiencing the film's anxiety is a real treat, especially since no animals were harmed in the making of the film.
Lijo Jose Pellissery
Born in 1979 in Kerala, Pellissery is considered one of the leading artists associated with Mollywood, a cinema shot in the Malayalam language.
He debuted in 2010 with the crime film "Nayakan". Since then he has worked in the genre cinema, but has developed an individual style, characterized by the aesthetics of violence and original, experimental narrative. "Jallikattu” is his seventh picture.
