We welcome the incoming class of 2024 and welcome back all students with this cult classic on the big screen. Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal. The disparate group includes a rebel, princess, outcast, brain, and jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently–and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.
Co-presented by the Film Association of Babson, Olin, Wellesley (FABOW). Made possible in part by the Stearns Memorial Film Society Fund.
Directed by Bong Joon-Ho

Winner of the 2019 Academy Award for best film, Parasite is a black-comedy thriller that follows the members of a destitute family who scheme their way into the household of a wealthy family. The symbiotic relationship and the battle for dominance that develops between the two clans is simultaneously hilarious and heart-wrenching. A darkly funny and suspenseful satire, Parasite is a devastating indictment of social inequality, class privilege, and greed–and the contemporary cultural values that allow them to fester. Post-screening Q&A session can be joined virtually. Check babsonarts.org for more details.
Co-presented by the Global Film Series and the Arts and Humanities Division.
