Tilda Swinton’s OKJA Viral Video Imagines the Nightmares of Pigs

Tilda Swinton’s OKJA Viral Video Imagines the Nightmares of Pigs

In the real world, there probably aren’t a lot of scientific studies about the dreams and desires of pigs. But in the bizarre world of Okja, the Mirando Corporation is all about the happiness of the pigs that they serve up for public consumption. After all, tenderness is the key to great tasty tenderloins! Ahead of Okja‘s debut on Netflix this summer, a new viral video has put forth Tilda Swinton‘s Lucy Mirando as the public face of the Mirando Corp’s experimental research. And according to Lucy, the pigs are much happier that way!

Confused yet? Don’t worry, we’re gonna explain as much as we can. (Although we really would love to know who came up with those pig nightmares in the video!) Within the world of this movie, the Miranda Corporation appears to have cornered the market on pigs, while also creating genetically engineering hybrid animals for consumption and other purposes. But all you really need to know is that Okja is an original film by Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-ho, which follows a young girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), as she desperately attempts to protect the title creature from the Miranda Corporation. And exactly what is Okja? As near as we can tell, it’s some kind of cross between a pig and a rhino.

Ahn may be a relative unknown in the United States, but she will be joined in Okja by a very impressive cast that is headlined by Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, and Giancarlo Esposito. Okja is premiering at Cannes next month, but fans in the U.S. will be able to catch it on Netflix starting on June 28.
