About the Webinar
South Asia Students For Liberty is organising a Samvad on Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite.
- A Samvad is a space where you can put your thoughts and ideas in front of an audience which is willing to hear, reciprocate, and contemplate.
- Set in modern Seoul, the movie is a nuanced allegory depicting two extreme ends of the socio-economic spectrum and the consequences that ensue. Bong’s message seems to be that there are consequences to our obscene division of wealth and labour. In his account, though, it’s inevitable that the parasites will bleed most.
- Who the titular parasites really are, has been a constant point of debate.
- Is Bong Joon Ho’s lauded Oscar favourite really the scathing critique of capitalism it is made out to be or is it merely a shrug over inequality? Is socialism really the solution to the problems highlighted in this story? How?
