Event Details

THE FACE OF ANOTHER

(Hiroshi Teshigahara, 1966)

--screening in 35mm--


New Visions of Japanese Cinema,

Co-sponsored by UCLA Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies 

 

 

 

 

About the film:  A staggering work of existential science fiction, The Face of Another dissects identity with the sure hand of a surgeon. Okuyama (Yojimbo's Tatsuya Nakadai), after being burned and disfigured in an industrial accident and estranged from his family and friends, agrees to his psychiatrist’s radical new experiment: a face transplant, created from the mold of a stranger. As Okuyama is thus further alienated from the strange world around him, he finds himself giving in to his darker temptations. With unforgettable imagery, Teshigahara’s film explores both the limits and freedom in acquiring a new persona, and questions the notion of individuality itself.
