FOCUS ON CANNES 2019: PARASITE —BONG JOON HO

Parasite

"All unemployed, Ki-taek’s family takes peculiar interest in the Parks for their livelihood until they get entangled in an unexpected incident." "Parasite" is a critical darling at Cannes this year; it is poised for a Palme d'Or win if the trade winds on the Riviera are true. 

Bong Joon Ho

Bong Joon-Ho is one of the biggest names in Korean Cinema for good reason. Bong is a gifted auteur whose films (see “The Host” 2006) carry humor, social satire, suspense, and human interests in equal measure. Bong’s film “Okja” debuted at Cannes in 2017 — I was there for that, super fun.
