John Frankenheimer, 1966
Desperate to escape his dreary, dead-end life, an aging banker succumbs to a mysterious organization’s offer of a new identity and a fresh start. Surgically transformed into a handsome young man, he begins a jet-set existence among a shadowy community of similar “reborns.” But his heady exhilaration spirals into heart-stopping terror as he discovers that his newly purchased life carries a terrifying price.

The UVM Film Series Presents: The Body in Film
The UVM Film Series is a membership-based program in partnership with UVM’s Lane Series, Film and Television Studies Program, and the Fleming Museum of Art. Join fellow film-lovers for screenings, stimulating discussions, and guest speakers this semester.
In the films presented this season, we will consider such topics as: How do we see our bodies in relation to our planet (The Fountain)? What role does a face play in creating identity (Seconds)? How does dance both unite and alienate us from our bodies and cultures (Dancing Across Borders)? And how do sports, race, and politics converge in our bodies (Ali)? Join UVM students and UVM Professor Hilary Neroni in a journey of discovery as we explore the body in film.
Become a UVM Film Series Member for just $25.00 and enjoy admission to all four films. To join, please visit the Lane Series website or call 802-656-4455. Single tickets are available for $10 Adult / $4 Student/faculty at the door on the night of the film.
