PARASITE (B&W Version)

Director Bong Joon Ho shares a love of classic black-and-white films with his cameraman, Hong Kyungpyo. Having previously made a special black-and-white version of MOTHER (2009), he felt the urge again with PARASITE. "I'm sure everyone will have a different opinion about this version. Personally, I think all the characters look even more poignant, and that the distinctions between the three different spaces where the families live, with all the shades of grey, are even more tragic.”

L.A. Premiere of Black & White Version!

2019, Neon, 132 min, South Korea, Dir: Bong Joon Ho

When Kim Ki-woo (Woo-sik Choi) agrees to take over from his friend as English tutor for the daughter of a wealthy family, the stage is set for an epic showdown as class warfare meets black comedy, with the stakes deadlier than you could ever imagine. Working with some of the most outstanding actors in South Korea, writer-director Bong Joon Ho (SNOWPIERCER, OKJA) crafts a brilliantly layered world filled with gasp-out-loud moments. An intricate blend of bravura sequences, stellar character work and narrative twists, PARASITE was the Palme d'Or winner at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay (Bong).
