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.
An unruly, troublesome Olympic swimmer is sent to a rocky island notoriously underrepresented in sports. She is supposed to train a group of women cultivating the traditional art of shell diving to create a synchronized swimming team, but the women are very suspicious towards the ideas of a city girl who cannot appreciate their mastery. Diving into the local community proves to be much harder than the Olympic rivalry, but it can also be an important lesson for both sides of the quarrel.
This daring story about overcoming the limits, the painstakingly hard process of forging solidarity among women, and the meaning of sport rivalry, is also extremely entertaining and provides a remarkable insight into the unique culture of Jeju. The island, also known as the "Korean Hawaii," has recently become one of the postcard attractions of the peninsula, but in O Muel's film, neatly combining crazy humor with real emotions, we can see it from a completely different, non-tourist perspective and make friends with its inhabitants, who do not open their world for just anyone.
Born in 1971, a Korean painter, film and theatrical director, performer and culture animator, bound with the Jeju island, situated South from the Korean Penninsula. A member of a film collective Terror J, leader of an Independent Association of Jeju Filmmakers. The author of four feature films, all of which take place on his home island.
