Dust and Ashes
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.
Hae-su is very well-organized. She has no choice – she has several part-time jobs, and the minimum-wage employees are easy to replace. One evening, as she comes back home exhausted, she finds out her tiny shoulders will be burdened with yet another, particularly disagreeable, responsibility. Some calls will have to remain unanswered, and some documents quietly censored.
This half-whispered story is a journey through the mundane world of institutions, trying to fit people's real dramas into forms and insurance companies rule books. There is something hypnotic in the rhythm of Hae-su's actions – the backbone of the story is not the woman's secret, but her visits to a series of identical offices and the paths she is beating through the side streets of the city. There is no escalation of emotions here, although they can be felt in every minute of the film. The director builds his rough tale somewhere in the middle of a noir crime story and a Kafkaesque social cinema. This debut feature of the writer of "The Flu" is
a demanding film that stays with the viewer for a long time.
Born in 1978, graduated from Hanyoung High School in Yeosu and from the Department of Newspaper Broadcasting at Woosuk University in Jeonju.
He’s been a writer for various shows including "Manners In Battle" and "The Flu".
In 2011, he directed a short film "My Neighbors", which criticized the high suicide rate in Korean society. "Dust and Ashes" is his debut feature film.
