Post-film live video Q&A with director Bong Joon-ho!

Hailed visionary Bong Joon-ho (Memories of Murder, Snowpiercer) returns with a typically twisted, vegetarian-friendly blockbuster about the friendship between a young girl named Mija (Seo-Hyun Ahn, Monster) and her “super-pig,” Okja. In the guise of a family movie, this madcap anti-corporate satire follows the duo’s fight against a villainous corporation—led by the ever-superb Tilda Swinton, who plays both a hypocrite CEO and her scheming twin sister. En route to freedom, Mija and Okja encounter a plethora of quirky characters, including a cadre of ecoterrorists, led by a courteous troublemaker (Paul Dano), and a Sir Attenborough from hell (Jake Gyllenhaal). (Dir.: Bong Joon-ho, Korea/United States, 2017, 120 min., DCP, English and Korean with English subtitles)
