Neon is set to release a black and white version of Parasite for limited runs in NYC and LA, beginning on January 30th. Director Bong Joon Ho had dreamed of creating a black and white film since being inspired by films like Nosferatu, and had already completed this version before the color version premiered at Cannes and won the Palme d'Or. He thinks the viewing experience may be different for viewers, even though the film is otherwise the same.
