The Atlantic’s David Sims describes Okja as a “sublime tale of the value of humanity,” a “must-see” and an “impressive epic production worth seeing on a big screen.” From director Bong Joon Ho, the film explores the bond between man and animal, and the way we relate to one another and our world. As part of Washington Ideas, The Atlantic will host a special screening of Okja at Sidney Harman Hall followed by a moderated conversation – led by contributing editor Alison Stewart – with the film’s Academy Award® winning producer Jeremy Kleiner.
