Cinematique Presents: “Parasite”

December 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until December 4, 2019

$9

Parasite runs from Monday, December 2 thru Wednesday, December 4. It screens Monday thru Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.

The first ever Korean film to win the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Bong Joon-ho’s (Snowpiercer, The Host, Okja) Parasite blends thriller and satire to craft a searingly funny and tragic social commentary on class, greed, and violence. The film follows a poor family whose members take turns infiltrating a wealthy family’s mansion. The plan goes awry and the parasites are drawn into a vortex leading viewers on a journey filled with imaginative moments. With every frame beautifully composed, Parasite vividly contrasts the two families using humor, mystery and a creeping sense of tension. Bong once again skillfully fuses genre elements with social critique in a wildly entertaining, visually extraordinary and intoxicating manner.
