One Cut of the Dead
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.
Shot on a budget which in the case of any normal film set would hardly suffice for the toothpicks for the whole crew, "One Cut of The Dead" presents an invigoratingly fresh look at this half-rotten movie genre. The main characters are actors who strive for their best at the set of a production about the walking dead plague; they are trying to meet expectations of the director with a really difficult temperament. What if, however, this hyperactive artist will vanish somewhere and the location – an abandoned sewage treatment plant – will fall under attack of genuine zombie?
The film, about the plot of which the less you know the better, unexpectedly became a huge box office success in Japan. Shot out of pure passion for film, it earned thousand times as much as it cost. Shown in only three small cinemas at first, finally it has been seen by a 2 million audience. This incredibly brilliant game with conventions currently shines at world festivals (it has been presented at nearly 60 of them), proving that the format of walking dead films is still alive and kicking, the love for cinema can work miracles and a nervous laughter can easily turn into a scream of terror.
Born in 1984, he began his adventure with cinema already in secondary school, where he engaged his schoolmates as the cast and crew for his films. In 2010 he established a film studio Panpokopina. He shot "One Cut of The Dead" in just 8 days, after a workshop for directors and filmmakers which he attended at Enbu acting school in Tokyo.
