Parasite a tense social satire about a poor family, the Kims, who con their way into becoming the servants of a rich family, the Parks. In February 2020, it made history by becoming the first non-English language film to ever win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. In this video, we examine the way Parasite cleverly utilizes symbols and motifs to express its theme.
