The director who brought us Snowpiercer brings his film, Okja, to Netflix

The North American release (or lack thereof) of director Bong Joon Ho’s [easyazon_link identifier=”B00LFF3MKO” locale=”US” tag=”legoflei07-20″]Snowpiercer[/easyazon_link] was…frustrating, resulting in a great science fiction movie being swept under the rug. Thankfully, an even wider audience will give the South Korean director a chance with his upcoming new film, Okja.

From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.

Okra begins streaming only on Netflix on June 28, 2017.
