Following the huge critical and box office success of Bong Joon-Ho's PARASITE, we are very excited to present the highly anticipated black and white version of the film!
A life-long goal of Director Bong Joon Ho was to have the opportunity to present a black & white film, he has made the following statement:
“I'm extremely happy to present PARASITE in black and white and have it play on the big screen. It will be 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 time the film felt more like a fable and gave me the strange sense that I was watching a story from old time. 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. I had many fleeting impressions of this new version, but I do not wish to define them before it is presented. I hope everyone in the audience can compare their own experiences from the colour version and find their own path the Parasite in black and white." - Director Bong Joon Ho
