SNFCC Members x Cinobo | Film Club: Parasites - Εικόνα

Once in a month, with the Cinobo editors’ team, we invite our Members to a monthly dialogue that starts with a film presentation, goes beyond the limits of a "lecture" and expands into an exciting cinematic talk.

Cinema lovers meet at the SNFCC to discuss, share thoughts, and exchange views, starting with the film of the month.

The Film of May: Parasites (2019)

Bong Joon-ho is one of the most important contemporary directors and this is a triumph film, as it was the star at both the Oscars 2020 and the Cannes Film Festival 2019. Through Parasites he shows how family ties are affected by the financial state of the family, or maybe not, and it gives a fresh look on the class struggle.

Summary: The Kim family is happy, but they are all unemployed and their future is bleak. The son of the family finds a job as a private tutor and finally hopes for a steady income. Carrying the expectations of his whole family, he goes for an interview at the Park House - owners of an international IT company - to meet the lady of the house. After this first encounter, a torrent of unfortunate events begins.

Festival Gem: Best Picture Award | Oscar 2020, Best Director Award | Oscar 2020, Best Original Screenplay Award | Oscar 2020, Best International Feature Film Award| Oscar 2020, Palme d'Or | Cannes Festival 2019

According to the latest measures to protect public health from the risk of spreading COVID-19, a valid vaccination certificate or a disease certificate, is required for the public to enter the event venue, as the venue operates as a pure venue. The above applies to adults. Μinors from 4 to 17 years old may, alternatively, submit a statement of negative self-diagnosis (self test) of the last twenty-four hours, a certificate of PCR (72 hours) or rapid (48 hours) diagnostic test, in accordance with the recent government measures.

The use of face mask and social distancing measures are mandatory in indoor and outdoor areas of the SNFCC, in accordance with Hellenic National Public Health Organization regulations.

A parallel identity check will be carried out on the persons who show the required certificates, as provided by law.

Due to public health measures, there may be changes regarding either the staging of the event, or the maximum number of participants.
