Filmosophy returns for a ninth season of thought-provoking films and philosophical discussions. This season we celebrate the work of award-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. Kaufman engages with great creativity, rare imagination and whimsical humour some of the most fascinating issues in philosophy. Our opening screening is the inimitable Being John Malkovich.

Ever wanted to be someone else? Craig Schwartz (John Cusack), a struggling puppeteer, stumbles upon a portal into the mind of renowned actor John Malkovich and embarks on a mission to change his life, forever. Featuring a great cast (including Catherine Keener, Cameron Diaz, and Malkovich himself), Being John Malkovich offers a highly original take on the body-swap genre and affords insight into the philosophy of identity and the nature of consciousness.

The film will be preceded by a short introduction and followed by an accessible and informal post-screening discussion hosted by James Mooney, lecturer in film and philosophy (Centre for Open Learning, University of Edinburgh). Join us in exploring questions regarding the nature of consciousness, truth, art, and the human condition through the mind of one of the most original artists of the 21st century.
