In this Best Picture nominated film, director Bong Joon Ho—also nominated—brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Meet the Park Family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. When these two houses are brought together, the Kim children opportunistically install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks and make themselves indispensable. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ schemes, a savage battle breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. Screening times to follow.
Film entries are now being accepted for Farm Film Fest 12, the annual event sponsored by the Chatham Agricultural Partnership, the Columbia Land Conservancy, and the Crandell Theatre. See Farm Film Fest website for details or to download the application form.
Date TBD Due to the expected large crowd and the Crandell’s commitment to safeguard people’s health, the Farm Film Festival, originally scheduled for this Sunday, March 15th at noon, has been postponed until later in the season. In the meantime, the Crandell Theatre’s normal screenings are still on the schedule. In place of the Farm Film Fest on Sunday, we have scheduled a second screening of Balloon.
