Deaf Conversations About Cinema from 20:20 in the Café/Bar featuring BSL interpretation

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

The 18:10 screening on Mon 24 Feb will feature Descriptive Subtitles and an introduction from Thea Berry, Watershed’s Cinema Producer followed at 20:20 by a post-show discussion in the Café/Bar with audience members, both of which will have simultaneous BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation. The Kim family are poor and living on the margins of society 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.
