Dear All,
You are invited to join us for watching the movie "Parasite" within the activity of The "Foreigners of the Oscars".

As the 92nd Academy Awards Ceremony is fast approaching, Istanbul Modern Cinema focuses on the “Best International Feature Film” category, which until last year was titled “Best Foreign Language Film”.

About the film:

Parasite from master director Bong Joon-ho became one of the most talked about films of the year after it won the Palme d’Or at Cannes. As he did in his former films, the director merges a variety of genres such as drama, comedy, violence and suspense with great success in Parasite. This time Joon-ho focuses on the inter-class differences through the interaction of the poor Kim family, who live in difficult conditions in a humid basement, and the wealthy Park family, who live in a luxurious home in prosperity. Kim family’s life is transformed after their son Ki-woo is offered a new job. Ki-woo is to give private English lessons to the daughter of the Park family, and through various tricks, Ki-woo ensures that the rest of his family members are also recruited at the Parks. However, the lives of both families will be transformed and not in the way they expect. Parasite won the Palme d’Or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival and the Best Film in a Foreign Language prize at the 77th Golden Globes.

P.S. This film’s screening is free of admissions and has Turkish subtitles. Drop in, no reservations.
