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

Film Synopsis:
Ki-taek's family of four is close, but fully unemployed, with a bleak future ahead of them. The son Ki-woo is recommended by his friend, a student at a prestigious university, for a well-paid tutoring job, spawning hopes of a regular income. Carrying the expectations of all his family, Ki-woo heads to the Park family home for an interview. Arriving at the house of Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm, Ki-woo meets Yeon-kyo, the beautiful young lady of the house. But following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait.

Winner of the Palme d’Or (Best Film award) at the Cannes Film Festival – the first ever for a Korean film – this family tragicomedy is the latest masterpiece from Bong Joon-Ho, the director of The Host and Snowpiercer. PARASITE confirms his position as one of the world’s most inventive and captivating filmmakers.
