The film screening is organized by the CEU Society for the Appreciation of the Moving Image, coordinated by Levan Nadibaidze.

Hiroshi Teshigara's concluding film in the trilogy that also includes Woman in the Dunes and Pitfall. Says the famous Random Person on IMDB: "A brutal commentary on self-image and the way that appearances can change the attitude and ideals of a person that is one of the best films I've ever seen. [The main character] starts off as a brutally wounded man, who is afraid to go out in public due to his horrible disfigurement. He realizes how important looks are and all he wants is a new face so that he can blend back into society and be with his wife again. There's no desire to be attractive or important, he just wants to be normal. But once he gets his new face, his attractive appearance turns him into a completely different man…" Free and open to the CEU community; non-CEU guests should sign in at the door.
