The struggling Kim family sees an opportunity when the son starts working for the wealthy Park family. Soon, all of them find a way to work within the same household and start living a parasitic life.
Parasite won over 300 awards worldwide, including the 2019 Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Director, the 2019 Cannes Palme d’Or and the 2019 Sydney Film Festival. No wonder: it’s a great film.
The film will be introduced and given context by Peter Rainey, an SMSA member and cinema enthusiast, who returns to an earlier passion for films as a Program Director for a Queensland Cinema Group, now that he has retired after 40 years in the education profession.
This event will be held in person at our Henry Carmichael Theatre, Level 1, 280 Pitt Street Sydney.
Registration to attend this event is essential.
Should NSW Health rules change in relation to reduced venue capacity, we reserve the right to cancel your registration and will contact you if this is the case.
