Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.

Director: Bong Joon Ho

KILROY WAS HERE is an American symbol that became popular during World War II, typically seen in graffiti on walls and floors of places U.S.A. servicemen visited, letting everyone know that America was here. Its origin is debated, no one really knows how it got started, but the phrase and the distinctive accompanying doodle became associated with GIs in the 1940s: a bald-headed man depicted as having a few hairs with a prominent nose peeking over a wall with his fingers clutching the wall. 

This is your chance to find out how the whole thing "really" got started. Salute the brave men and women serving in the military with this patriotic comedy.  Experience a U.S.O. Club in Brooklyn in 1942.  Ships leaving the nearby Navy yard are being sunk by enemy U-boats.  Allied intelligence suspects the club is unknowingly harboring Axis spies.  Private Joe Kilroy, a young soldier is causing trouble at every turn because he draws a curious cartoon face everywhere he goes. The enemy agents are stopping at nothing to learn American secrets.  In the end, the wild radio broadcast is where everything is revealed and the whole thing makes sense.

In the Art Bar: Collette Griffith

Originally from Hollywood, California, Colette Griffith moved to the Skagit Valley almost 10 years ago. The things she loves about living here are the very things that made her start painting: seeing bald eagles, owls, great blue herons or cows with their calves when driving down a country road. The breath-taking scenery and the old barns and wood-fences provide her with endless inspiration.
