Five Flavours Asian Film FestivalNews

Return to cinemas! Two cinema premieres of the Five Flavours films.

This summer Five Flavours will release two films, that were meant to hit the screens of Polish cinemas in spring.

As a result of the pandemic, the Five Flavours had to reorganize our distribution plans. Now that cinemas in Poland were allowed to reopen, Five Flavours returns to film distribution and goes ahead with premieres that had to be cancelled in the spring.

“The Taste of Pho”, directed by Mariko Bobrik, a Japanese graduate of Lodz Film School, had its premiere on July 3. It’s an intriguing insight into the reality of the Vietnamese community in Warsaw, but most of all – a heartwarming story about family ties and love shown by small everyday gestures.

July 31 will see release “Maggie”, the first feature by Yi Ok-seop from South Korea, visually stunning and full of extraordinary humour story about young adults facing their own emotions and the absurds of today’s world. These two intriguing debuts of Asian female directors were among the greatest hits of the 13th edition of Five Flavours and will provide a great opportunity for Polish audiences to enjoy watching films on the big screen again.

The premiere of “Jinpa”, a Tibetan road movie directed by Pema Tseden and produced by Wong kar-wai, originally planned for June, was moved to early 2021.
