Welcome to the Bong Hive: A Bong Joon Ho Retro

April 5–May 2

Korean writer-director Bong Joon Ho made history in 2020 with PARASITE, the first South Korean film to receive an Academy Award® in any category and the first film not in the English language to win the coveted Oscar® for Best Picture (in addition to winning Best Director, Best International Feature and Best Original Screenplay). But Bong's magical mix of pitch-black comedy, sharp social satire, deep compassion and unnerving honesty has been there from the beginning, applied unsparingly across a spectrum of genres and within works that always defy easy definition. Covering everything from small-town police procedurals to sci-fi eco-satires, Bong's body of work transcends genre. Like PARASITE, his earlier features — all included in this retrospective — are spectacular to look at, provocative and poignant, carrying profound observations about the state of humanity, tempered by moments of absurdity, laughter and sheer delight. Jump in, and welcome to the Bong Hive.
