Okja (2017)

Ep. 57

We watched 2017’s Okja and now we’re going to talk about how we’ve been processing it.

We talk about the strengths and weaknesses of this film, the difference between making a movie about meat vs. one about corporatism, and we dive into the world of meat alternative burgers!

CW: This movie has a 3rd act that is essentially a pig-POV inside a breeding centre/slaughterhouse and Okja is personified to a degree that we wanted to ensure folks with sensitivities towards physical/sexual abuse are aware that those topics come up (around the 30 minute mark).
