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.
Taeko, in her laced shoes and a white shirt buttoned up to her neck, arrives in a small guesthouse on one of the Okinawa islands. She's looking for rest and solitude. But as it turns out, she can't count on a discrete, professional service. The local community has its own, slightly bizarre, customs, which she willy-nilly has to adapt to. Distancing yourself from others is not a desirable quality here. And the island, as the host uneasily admits, has absolutely nothing interesting to see. What it does have is the raw beauty of nature, empty beaches, and a very turquoise sea.
This minimalistic, poetic postcard from unusual holidays was made using modest, but potent means. The atmospheric frames, in which every object appears for a reason, contemplate the humble beauty of a small town and the daily routines celebrated by its people. The absurd, yet subtle sense of humor pinpoints every scene, and the characters are ceaselessly intriguing. And adorable and surprising story about learning to look at the sea, tasting ice-cream, and the virtue of morning gymnastics.
Born in 1972 in the Chiba Prefecture. In 1994 she left for the US where she studied directing at University of South California. Her sweet and melancholic films, with
a characteristic visual style, are enormously popular among the audiences, often appearing at international festivals.
