Avant Première: Parasite (KR 2019) with Artist Talk


Palme d’Or 2019 winner Parasite is a pitch black comedy in which director Bong Joon Ho depicts a cruel yet convincing picture of social segregation and wealth polarisation in South Korea, stirring up heated discussion within Korea and abroad.

Kim Ki-taek lives with his wife Chung-sook, his son Ki-woo, and his daughter Ki-jeong in a shabby semi-basement apartment. The family struggles to survive, working any low-paying gigs available. Ki-woo's friend Min-hyuk gives them a large rock which is supposed to bring them wealth before he leaves to study abroad. He suggests Ki-woo pose as a fellow university student to take over his job as an English tutor for the wealthy Park family's daughter Da-hye. Ki-woo gets himself hired, being only the first of the Kim family to find employent in the Park mansion...

After screening Parasite with English subtitles, there will be a one-hour artist talk with 3 artists: Matthijs de Bruijne (The Netherlands), Catalina González (Chile) and Yunjei Cho (South Korea).

This talk aims to deepen the topic by sharing real life experiences from South Korea, and bringing other relatable examples from countries like Chile, Argentina, China and the Netherlands. The talk is also to help understand our positions as young artists or as young people - what does this global phenomenon of social segregation mean for us? Are we in control of our future? What are the affecting social, political or ecological factors? Can art play a role in the envisioning of a better future? What are the artworks there to be taken as examples?
