The Host 괴물 (Bong Joon-ho 봉준호, 2006) – June 18th
June 18, 2019 @ 9:15 pm - 11:15 pm$12
After his EPIC Palme d’Or win at Cannes this year, the Downtown Independent knew that the only appropriate thing to do was to keep the Bong Joon-ho party going and show some of his previous work…in 35mm!!
We are THRILLED to announce that we will be playing one of Bong Joon-ho’s most legendary films- his (perhaps literally?) groundbreaking monster movie, The Host 괴물. Visually bombastic, exciting and as socially critical as the rest of his work, this is one of his top films that should NOT be missed on the big screen. I mean- who wants to miss out on GIGANTIC mutant creatures on 35mm, right??
And for reference, The Host also stars Song Kang-ho, star of Parasite, Bong Joon-ho recently Cannes-acclaimed film as well as Memories of Murder and others…
Seeing this with an audience and on a big screen is an experience like nothing else. There may be Godzillas out there and Marvel superheroes right now, but The Host 괴물 is Bong Joon-ho’s filmic take on Korea, humanity, government corruption, and….what/who creates real monsters.
Get your tix now for this fabulous 35mm show!! They won’t last!
