GLASGOW Film Festival is to host the UK premiere black and white version of multi-Oscar winner ‘Parasite’.

Bong Joon Ho’s history-making South Korean social satire - the first foreign language film to ever win Best Picture - will be given a whole new dimension in its black and white edit.

Speaking of his preference of black and white, Bong Joon Ho said: “I think it may be vanity on my part, but when I think of the classics, they’re all in black and white.

“So I had this idea that if I turned my films into black and white then they’d become classics.”
