Event Details

Join us for an in-person discussion of the 2019 award-winning black comedy thriller film Parasite.

This South Korean film follows the destitute Kim family as they infiltrate the wealthy Park family, posing as highly qualified tutors, housekeepers, and chauffeurs. They hope to leech off the Park family, living in their home and using their house whenever possible, only to find themselves embroiled in a complicated mess of murder, missing persons, and psychosis.
