It is the fourth consecutive year that a Korean film has been invited to the competition, following "The Handmaiden" by Park Chan-wook in 2016, "Okja" by Bong and "The Day After - 2017" by Hong Sang-soo in 2017, and "Burning" by Lee Chang-dong in 2018.
"Parasite" revolves around an encounter between two families from completely different backgrounds -- one working class and the other upper class – when a son from the former seeks a tutoring job with the latter.
Another Korean film directed by Lee Won-tae was invited to the Midnight Screenings, a non-competition section. The thriller, "The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil", is about a gang boss and a detective chasing a serial killer.
American zombie comedy "The Dead Don't Die" directed by Jim Jarmusch will open the festival, which runs from May 14 to 26.
