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.
Two police officers set out incognito to a remote mountain village Churuli, where a suspect who has been escaping justice for far too long is hiding. Posing as manual laborers, the officers are trying to untangle the ties in the small, mysterious community in which everyone seems to be using at least two names. But the more they learn, the further away they seem to be from the answers they seek and the way out of the village, stuck in timelessness.
The prophetic books of the Old Testament, the customs of the Indian South, the impenetrable thickets of the forest, and the bizarre lights appearing among the trees at dusk – "Labyrinth" is a surreal tale, filled with understatements, encased in memorable, magnetically beautiful frames. This should not come as a surprise – the director, Lijo Jose Pellissery, the master of Malayalam-language cinema and the creator of the unforgettable "Jalikkatu" (14th Five Flavours), is boldly developing his own, incredibly original style with every film he makes. Diving into the world he creates is an unforgettable, dangerously hypnotic experience.
The film is an adaptation of a story by Vinoy Thomas.
Lijo Jose Pellissery
Born in 1979 in Kerala. One of the leading filmmakers of Mollywood – Malayalam-language cinema. He debuted in 2010 with a thriller "Nayakan." Since then, he continues to make genre films, but he managed to create his own, individual style, characterized by the presence of polyphonic crowd scenes, aestheticization of violence and experimental narration. "Labyrinth" is his eight feature.
