Force Theology Film Club: UNDER THE SKIN

May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

To cap off our running theme of arthouse horror (and recent transhumanism in Beyond the Black Rainbow), our next discussion will be on UNDER THE SKIN, directed by Jonathan Glazer and starring Scarlett Johansson. Regulars and newcomers alike are invited to share their observations, analysis, theoretical interpretations, and critical evaluations

This existential horror of human ontology is streaming for free on Kanopy, and also available on Netflix
