ChatCast 39: Bong Joon-ho on ‘Parasite’

October 10, 2019

The ITMODChatCast Channel will never be the same again! This week we begin our series of conversations held in Austin, Texas, as part of the Fantastic Fest Film Festival, and we're kicking it all off with a deep thematic discussion with a legendary filmmaker - Bong Joon-ho. Of course, we're massive fans of his work. Movies like "The Host," "Snowpiercer," and "Okja" are near and dear to our hearts, but we think "Parasite" might not only be his greatest work but a culmination of everything he's had to say so far. And we're not alone in that thinking. "Parasite" won the Audience Award at Fantastic Fest, and it's the first Korean film to ever win the Palme d'Or.

You can follow the podcast on Instagram and Twitter @ITMODCast, and you can follow the hosts @MouthDork & @sidewalkersiren. "Parasite" opens in select theaters on October 11th and will open much wider in the following weeks.
