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.
When a bedsore appears on the body of a bedridden old lady, the life of her three-generational family suddenly becomes very complicated. The woman’s husband does not take the matter too seriously, but her kids suspect the caretaker,
Yu Soo-ok, an illegal immigrant from China, has been neglecting her duties. Intergenerational, social and economic dependencies, hidden prejudice and egoism slowly start coming to the surface, inflaming the situation even further. Can they cure their relations or will they need to resort to drastic measures?
"Bedsore" is an enticing and disturbing family thriller, slowly but steadily building up inner tensions. Just like her beloved Mike Leigh, the first-time director inspects family relations with talent and consequence. Her findings turn out to be pretty grim and paints a pessimistic picture of the Korean nation, stuck in a permanent stupor.
As a director and scriptwriter Shim Hye-jung mainly works on performance and film work. Her experimental films include "Lost voices" (VR, 2017), "Carnival" (2016), "Searching for Nasi Goreng" (2016), and "Dancing Hunter & Rabbit" (2014). She also directed a documentary film, "The Camel and The Arab" (2013). Her film dramas include "Kimchi" (2012), "Heels Over Head" (2015) and "Camellias in bloom" (2016). The films were presented in Seoul International New Media Festival, Jeonju International Film Festival, Seoul Independent Film Festival and many more leading film festivals in Korea.
