Can the Society Be Changed by a Hero? : A New Type of Anti-heroic Narrative in Snowpiercer in Relation to Foucault’s Power

This paper tries to analyze how Snowpiercer, a movie directed by Korean director Bong Jun-ho, deconstructs the concept of modern revolution and creates a new type of anti-heroic narrative. The way Snowpiercer subverts the romantic concept of modern revolution is closely related to Foucault’s concept of power.
