Korean director Bong Joon Ho’s Gisaengchung (Parasite) 2019 - which not only won the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival but an Oscar for Best Film - charts the desperate places we find ourselves in pursuit of reliable employment. A pitch black comedy that explores economic inequality, the service industry and class structures, Parasite follows the poor Kim family as, one by one, they are employed by the rich Park family. A genre mash up that is both thriller and social commentary Bong’s film nudges at the universal question of whether it is the people or the system that are the bloodsuckers.
