Known for his combination of action and horror genres with dark bite, Bong Joon Ho manages to sneak in environmental messages in his film. His latest vision Okja follows along a girl named Mija who lives in the beautiful, lush mountains of South Korea with her grandfather and their sweet genetically engineered pig, Okja!

The bond between these two is evident, but soon they are torn apart, thrust back into Okja’s creator -the Miranda meat corporation!

It’s no Disney fairytale the film is meant to be a depiction of the dark realities of animal laboratories and factory meat farms, the movie does take its dark turn, but there is a happy ending!
