SYNOPSIS:
Meet the Park Family — the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family — rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims’ sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide indispensable luxury services while the Parks give the Kims a way out of their shabby circumstances. But this new ecosystem is fragile, and soon enough greed and class prejudice threaten to upend the Kims’ newfound comfort. Within a series of twists and turns, acclaimed director Boon Jooh-ho's Parasite delivers a satire that, despite its sharp comedic approach, offers a powerful and poignant social commentary. Winner of Cannes Film Festival’s prestigious Palme d’Or.
BIO:
Bong Joon-Ho directed six feature films before Parasite: Barking Dogs Never Bite (2000), Memories of Murder (2003), The Host (2006), Mother (2009), Snowpiercer (2013), and Okja (2017). Memories of Murder delves into the investigation behind a well-known serial murder case that was never solved, depicting the authoritarian era of the time with satire and sharp insight. The Host, the abduction of a young girl by a strange creature that crawls out of the Han River, turns the monster movie genre on its head, also with stinging social commentary. Mother, the story of a woman trying to protect her son from a murder charge, is a dark portrait of motherly love taken to the extreme. The sci-fi film Snowpiercer, portrays the last remnants of humanity in a future world that has been frozen over due to overdone efforts to fix global warming. Finally, Okja tells of the country girl Mija's adventure to rescue the genetically-engineered super pig she raised from the profit-driven corporation that owns it.
