Event Date: 17 – 29 November 2021

City: Warsaw

The programme includes Yujiro Harumoto’s A Balance, Zhang Yimou’s Cliff Walkers, Cheng Yu-Chieh’s Dear Tenant, Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Labyrinth, Ko Chen-Nien’s The Silent Forest, Adam Wong’s The Way We Keep Dancing, Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Wife of a Spy.

 

Asian Film Awards Academy (AFAA) collaborates with the Five Flavours Asian Film Festival again in presenting AFAA’s flagship film roadshow – Asian Cinerama.

 

Financially supported by Create Hong Kong and the Film Development Fund of the Hong Kong SAR Government, Asian Cinerama will take place at cinema muranów, kinoteka and online at piecsmakow.pl.

 

The programme includes Japanese director Yujiro Harumoto’s A Balance, the second film by Yujiro Harumoto is a gripping and emotionally brutal drama that asks difficult questions about the fragility of principles. Harumoto’s tightly constructed labyrinth plot and unflinching observations of human frailty are reminiscent of Asghar Farhadi’s gripping morality plays. Another classy Chinese action thriller whose dazzling style seems to take place in a deliberate narrative void, Cliff Walkers marks leading Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s first foray into the espionage genre. Dear Tenant by Taiwanese director Cheng Yu-Chieh , is a moving drama about the love found within queer families. Taiwan has often been hailed as one of the most progressive Asian countries when it comes to LGBTQ rights with legalizing same-sex marriage since 2019. But as Cheng Yu-Chieh explores in Dear Tenant, just because something has become legal doesn’t mean the prejudice ends overnight, and much of Taiwanese society still has a long way to go when it comes to acceptance of queer people.

 

Other outstanding Asian films that will showcase in the programme include Lijo Jose Pellissery ‘s Labyrinth (Churuli), As one of the leading filmmkaers of Mollywood, Lijo brings his eight feature to the audience. Labyrinth is a surreal tale, filled with understatements, encased in memorable, magnetically beautiful frames. Based on real events of the Tainan School for hard of hearing in Taiwan, The Silent Forest takes a candid look of the heinous culture of abuse that went on unchecked for much too long, as well as examining larger power structures and cultural influence behind it. It is a powerful depiction of trauma, corruption, and fight for justice, all handled with an incredibly skillful touch by Ko Chen-Nien, a young director making her debut in the long format and undoubtedly also making a lasting mark on Taiwanese cinema history. Hong Kong director Adam WONG’s The Way We Keep Dancing is the eagerly anticipated sequel to his popular 2013 success The Way We Dance on street dance culture in Hong Kong. This time, the dancers including Cherry Ngan and Babyjohn Choi from the original cast, are faced with gentrification of the district that has nurtured their creativity. Wife of a Spy, Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s gorgeous, riveting Venice Best Director winner is an espionage drama in the league of Hitchcock’s Notorious, a romance as glorious as David Lean’s wartime epics, and a metafilmic charade that hails cinema as salvation for modern civilization.
