From the imagination of Bong Joon Ho (Okja, Snowpiercer, The Host), this must-see Oscar®-winning blackly comic thriller finds a family of grifters worming their way into an upper-class family’s perfect world.

The Kims are living a marginal life when their son fakes his way into becoming the English tutor for the ultra-wealthy Park family. Soon all four of the family members have roles in their hyper-stylish modern home, having used every dirty trick in the book... but the house hides secrets that are way outside the Kim’s scheme.

Already the most successful Palme d’Or winner ever, Parasite is what happens when the have-nots have their day. A deliciously fun poisoned cocktail of dark humour, social satire and perfect set pieces, this gripping thriller is a sensational experience that keeps surprising to its last drop.

Join us for Thought in Action: Conversations About Cinema following the 18:00 screening on Tue 25 Feb featuring guests JongMi Kim (Media and Cultural Theory, Coventry University), Maria Russo (Philosophy, San Raffaele University, Milan), Katie Preece (UWE Student) and Bola Adediran (UWE Politics, chair) who'll be discussing the themes of the film.
