A special screening of "Parasite" held in the capital of Indonesia sold out on February 14th, The eight hundred person seat venue was sold out in the wake of "Parasite"'s win at the Academy Awards earlier this week, showing renewed interest in the movie since its official release in Indonesia last year.
Long before its win at the Academy Awards "Parasite" was noteworthy for breaking international records as a Korean film in foreign markets. Its performance was particularly strong in Southeast Asia, as Korean movie corporation CGV owns many theaters in that area and could assure distribution commensurate with demand.
