‘Parasite’ Dominates Online Edition of the Asian Film Awards

Parasite, the dark comedy by Bong Joon-ho has added four more prizes on Wednesday, which included the best film and best screenplay. It had earlier won four Oscars, and Cannes 2019.

Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, the 14th AFA ceremony was an online ceremony, due to the ongoing travel restrictions. Apart from being awarded in the best movie and best screenplay category, the film also bagged prizes for Yang Yinmo’s editing and Lee Ha- jun’s production design.

Bong said that he believes each artist from the movie had equal rights to make a speech along with him, as it was teamwork. It was possible to make such a movie due to the collective efforts of all the artists. He also said that he is sure that for the next Asian Film Awards, all of them would meet personally, shake hands, and enjoy together without any restrictions and masks. And that nothing can stop them from making good films together.
