Movie screening Parasite; introduction by Wiebe Nauta, on 4 December

On Wednesday 4 December from 19.30-22.00 FASoS is, in collaboration with Lumière cinema, organising a screening of the award-winning South Korean movie Parasite.

Parasite is about an umemployed family that integrates slowly in a wealthy family. Wiebe Nauta will introduce the film by discussing some of the main challenges South Koreans face in contemporary South Korean society such as growing inequality.

Tickets cost €5 for students and €6.50 for staff.

Bong Joon-ho’s winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes combines the genres of black comedy and home invasion thriller in the satirical tale about a rich Korean family and a poor one. A story of class struggle, Parasite, dissects with surgical precision the life of two families of different social backgrounds. Ki-taek is the unemployed patriarch of a family of derelicts who live in an overcrowded sordid basement. The Parks on the other hand, live in a fabulous house with their teenage daughter and terribly spoiled son. When, due to an unexpected stroke of luck, Ki-Woo is hired by the Parks to be the private English tutor of the daughter, the destinies of the two families cross. Their explosive meeting exposes the merciless evils of class inequalities.

In his introduction to the film Parasite he will discuss some of the main challenges South Koreans face in contemporary South Korean society: increasing inequalities, a political and economic elite elite that is said to prey on the rest of society; tensions between the sexes leading to one of the lowest fertility rates in the world; and the highest teenage suicide rate in the world.
