After faking his way into a job as a tutor for the wealthy Park family, Kim Ki-woo (Choi Woo-shik) begins looking for employment opportunities for his family members as well. Gradually, the affluent Park family and the street-smart Kim family become increasingly enmeshed in work and life. With its shrewd depiction of class conflict and darkly hilarious narrative, Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite has met with enormous critical and commercial success.

Kyung Hyun Kim (East Asian Studies and Visual Studies, UC Irvine) will join moderator Sowon S. Park (English, UCSB) for a virtual discussion that examines the film’s complex cultural critiques and subversive themes.

Parasite can be streamed onAmazon Prime VideoGoogle PlayHulu, and Vudu.

This virtual event will take place on Zoom. The event is free but prior registration is required.

This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center.
