The Way We Keep Dancing
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.
A continuation of the hit music film "The Way We Dance," which introduced the world to the Hong Kong hip hop and street dance scenes. In part one, the energetic group of young, talented protagonists was fighting for their dreams and was looking for a way to express their identities through dance. Today, their creative passion is counted in dollars, and hip-hop is present not only on the streets and campuses, but also in big recording studios and the commercials and projects of developers, for whom the presence of young artists is a way to attract young investors.
Wong's bitter-sweet story is a unique insight into the world of music underground and a touching portrait of a young generation faced with the hard reality of contemporary economy, forced to confront their ideals with the pragmatic demands of everyday life. The director did not want to rely on the success of part one, this is why we are not just watching the subsequent events in the lives of the protagonists. The actors are playing fictional versions of themselves, facing difficult life choices a few years after the success of the film. It is an intriguing insight into the inner workings of the creative industry – young artists from all across the globe will surely recognize many familiar situations – but also a broad portrait of the modern Hong Kong, which is constantly changing, facing the incoming generations with completely new challenges.
Director and lecturer, graduate of the Faculty of Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. For "The Way We Dance" (2013) he received a Hong Kong Film Award and a Hong Kong Film Directors Award for young directors. He did not want to make a sequel of the film right after its success, jokingly saying that instead of making "The Way We Dance 2," he'll go straight to part three, with all his protagonists already grown up. He decided not to make high-budget films, instead focusing on smaller productions.
