Participate in a frame-by-frame analysis of a film clip from Bong Joon-ho's Parasite ​and discover how to enhance your viewing experience through an understanding of cinematography, sound, and editing.

Parasite is a 2019 South Korean dark comedy thriller following members of a poor household scheming to become employees of a much wealthier family by posing as unrelated, highly qualified individuals. The film premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, where it became the first Korean film to win the Palme d'Or. The film received numerous accolades, with six nominations at the 92nd Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best International Feature Film. At the 77th Golden Globe Awards, the film won the award for Best Foreign Language Film. It also became the first non-English film to win the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Case in a Motion Picture.
