Parasite (B&W version)

5TH ANNIVERSARY! Bong Joon Ho's PARASITE has been recrafted by the director in striking black and white. Born from a desire to make a monochrome feature, the award-winning director has said of this alternate version, "I’m extremely happy to present PARASITE in black and white and have it play on the big screen. It (is) fascinating to see how the viewing experience changes when an identical film is presented in black and white. I watched the black-and-white version twice now, and at times the film felt more like a fable. The second time I watched it, the film felt more realistic and sharp as if I was being cut by a blade. It also further highlighted the actors’ performances and seemed to revolve more around the characters."


Ki-Taek (Song Kang-Ho, The Host) and his family are living meal-to-meal in the slums of South Korea. Making ends meet by folding pizza boxes, Ki-Taek's son Ki-Woo (Choi Woo-shik, Train To Busan) is offered the chance to tutor the young daughter of a wealthy family. Ingratiating himself into the home of Mr and Mrs Park, Ki-Woo quickly engineers the employment of his sister as a tutor for the family's young son. This sets off a chain of events that brings together the two families in an unexpected and sinister way. Winner: Palme d'Or - Cannes Film Festival. 6 Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, International Feature, Editing, Production Design.
