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.
Eka and her brother Hari get the dramatic news of their mother's suicide. Devastated, they return to their home village to plan their mother's burial. The village (of course) turns out to be weird and nightmarish, its inhabitants – unwelcoming, and the thick, woods around it – extremely dangerous. What secrets does this gloomy place hide? And what pushes the people of the village to take their own lives? Will the siblings find out the truth about their mother, suspected of making a dark, shamanic pact with the forces of evil? And find out who they really are?
It is not easy to come up with something fresh and surprising in the folk horror genre today, but Cornelio Sunny bravely proves that it is still possible. "Death Knot" rejects cheap generic tricks and special effects put in to cover the lack of ideas. One by one, the horrifying events tighten the string of tension, inevitably pushing the audiences to the edges of their seats. Regardless of its low budget, the clever script makes "Death Knot" the best Indonesian scare of they year – intriguing, atmospheric, and blood-chilling!
