Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Parasite" *For Adults

Friday, September 10, 2021

Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! We hope you will join us virtually, until we can meet in person again. We'll be discussing "Parasite" - a film about greed and class distinctions. It won 4 Oscars and is a film critics call a "masterpiece."

The way it works:


PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch "Parasite" on Kanopy - one of the library's video streaming service - and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!


You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register - you can use any of BPL's online resources with this card!).


Please register to receive the program link - which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact ashlandprograms@minlib.net with any questions.


Synopsis:


Greed and class discrimination threaten the relationship between the wealthy Park family and the destitute Kim clan in Bong Joon Ho's darkly hilarious modern fairytale.


Winner of Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Film at the Academy Awards. Winner of Best Foreign Motion Picture - Foreign Language at the Golden Globe Awards. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
