Film

Philip Kaufman's Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the second Hollywood adaptation of Jack Finney's famous serialized Sci-fi/horrornovel, The Body Snatchers, was released in 1978.  
A species of gelatinous creatures, having abandoned their dying planet and traveled to Earth, land in San Francisco. They infiltrate Earth's ecosystem, latching onto plant life. Soon, people are being replaced by emotionless replicas, using the plants that get them when they sleep. 

This screening is part of 'A Series of More-than-Human Encounters', a program by Crosstalks and Kaaitheater focusing on encounters between humans and non-humans. In collaboration with Cinema RITCS.

PROGRAM

Duration: 155 min
The film will be introduced by Gosie Vervloessem.

BIOS 

Gosie Vervloessem’s artistic research focuses on the position of the researcher in times of multiple crises. Her work faces the challenges that arise within this role, and looks for new ways of producing knowledge. Her practice is an ongoing quest on finding tools to relate to a world that is messy and chaotic. Therefore she juggles with and re-interprets the practices of cooking, digesting, co-digesting, immersion or osmosis, as tools to literally embody that relation. [Immersion or osmosis in comparison with digestion covers more holes than the mouth and anus and therefore it seems a richer concept.] Her work focuses mainly on the concept of nature and unravelling the ideas that underpin this concept. In doing that, she identifies herself as a Sick Detective, a character that involves the vegetal kingdom as a possible ally in her research. Her work is highly inspired by plant biology, comic books, and horror movies. It is mainly presented as lecture-performance, in the form of workshops or publications.

Director and screenwriter Philip Kaufman won the Prix de la Nouvelle Critique at Cannes in 1965 for his film Goldstein (1964). He was the screenwriter for The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976). Kaufman's first hit as director was Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978). Kaufman was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay for The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988).
