EASTERN PROMISES is dedicated to showcasing the best of East Asian cinemas, from beloved classics to forgotten gems. Celebrating 4/20 and the films of Bong Joon-Ho, The Paradise Bloor Theatre and Eastern Promises Presents an all-day event… Bong Hits!!

You’ve all seen Parasite already. But have you seen it in Black and White?? Bong Joon-Ho graded this version prior to the films colour premiere at Cannes. The result is an even more sinister effect than the coloured version, further widening the contrast between The Haves and The Have-Not’s. Let’s come together and indulge in the now classic modern-masterpiece, Parasite BLACK AND WHITE.

A wealthy family, and a poverty-stricken one, merge together into a bubbling kimchi stew of greed, envy, and class warfare. Almost like a heist, the destitute Kim clan manipulate their way into the home and lives of the ultra-privileged Park Family. What follows is a masterful tension that festers with melodrama and explodes with tragedy.
