The Oscar for Best Picture goes to … “Parasite”
“Parasite” made Academy history when it was declared the first non-English film to win the Oscar for Best Picture. A haunting story about class differences and the eternal struggle between the poor and the wealthy, director Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite” is an arthouse turned main-stream film and has been impressing audiences and critics around the world. It was nominated in six categories at the Academy Awards and became the biggest winner of the evening, earning four golden statuettes, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.
For the tenth year in a row, the Oscar for Best Picture was awarded to a film captured with ARRI. The Cinematographer on “Parasite,” Kyung-pyo Hong, chose the larger than large format of ARRI Rental’s ALEXA 65 camera and Prime DNA lenses for the film.
