OKJA

Rundown

From Snowpiercer director, Bong Joon Ho, this new Netflix film follows the friendship between a young girl and her best friend, a gigantic animal named Okja who a multi-national company wants to kidnap.

The mysterious trailer reveals beings with a voiceover declaring: “I took nature and science and I synthesized.” The viewer presumes it’s the voice of Tilda Swinton, but it’s still unclear really what’s going on in the trailer, or who exactly Swinton is supposed to be. From Netflix’s trailer description, we are told the film is a coming-of-age dramedy which somehow also covers the topics of GMO food experiments, globalization, eco-terrorism, as well as addressing “humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.”

Release date: June 28, 2017
