OzAsia Retrospectives Bong Joon-ho: The Early Films

We are excited to release in advance one of our OzAsia retrospectives, the others to be announced with OzAsia’s full program release later in the year. Bong Joon-ho was awarded 2019’s Palme d’Or (Parasite), the first for his national cinema and a richly deserved honour for arguably the most talented and influential figurehead of the South Korean New Wave. Utilising genre filmmaking to cast a critical lens on South Korea, US imperialism, and global issues of justice, corruption, and the environment , he has found international success for his adept handing of both the unsettling and the comic.
