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.
Choon-gil is the only member of a high school wrestling team in Daepoong,
a decrepit working-class town everyone dreams of leaving. The boy's coach turns into a bus driver, and their training room is being demolished. Sounds familiar?
If it does, you must expect a final glimmer of hope on the horizon. In this case, it is a wrestling match. Winning it means a scholarship and leaving Daepoong, possibly forever. The coach comes back, and Choon-gil expands the team with
a couple of friends – Hyk-jun, the unstable member of the elite Black Tigers gang, and Jun-kwon, the depressed physical worker providing for his whole family. Just like in any full-blooded sports film, the boys begin a race against time, facing adversities and their own weaknesses. Will they do everything in their power to beat the front-runners and change their fates?
Ko Bong-soo, whose ability to combine dead seriousness with hysterical laughter puts him in the same team with Aki Kaurismäki, ignores trends and fashions and keeps making his own style of cinema since his memorable debut "Delta Boys."
As always, his film cost next to nothing, but the final outcome is spectacular. With his great ear for vivid, hilarious dialogues, and a great eye for colorful characters, Ko creates a subversive story of a group of dark horses nobody is prepared to bet on, but who have a lot to prove to the world. The camera portrays the imperfect protagonists fighting for a better tomorrow with affection and understanding.
His directorial debut, "Delta Boys" (2016), won the Grand Prize winner of the Jeonju IFF 2016 Korean Competition, and since then all his features was shown there.
In his works, Ko depicts the weary yet indomitable dreams of the figures who are inferior in the secular sense. His figures do not give in to slander, scolding, and oppression and positively accept the life of a minority. Ko is a distinctive pioneer of comedy in Korean independent cinema who works on silent comedy and fake documentary.
