The South Korean tradition of outstanding cinema continues with Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite. A biting social satire, family comedy and thriller in one that quite rightly won the Palme d’Or in Cannes. A masterpiece. Bong Joon-ho and his DoP Hong Kyungpyo share the love of classic black & white films, and therefore present this special black & white version of Parasite. It premiered at IFFR and can now be seen in KINO. Presented with English subtitles.
