In conjunction with Renoir: The Body, The Senses, Images Cinema and the Clark Art Institute present Being in the Body. This series explores the experience of being in a body, one's own or another's. What does it mean to be in a body? What does it feel like? Do our bodies define us, or is there something more?

Being John Malkovich (US, 1999) 
When frustrated puppeteer Craig Schwartz finds a portal into John Malkovich’s body, he discovers he can experience what it feels like to be Malkovich. Eventually he learns to control the acclaimed actor too, which Craig thinks will get him everything he ever wanted. Directed by Spike Jonze and written by Charlie Kaufman, this cult comedy favorite stars John Cusack, Catherine Keener, Cameron Diaz and, of course, John Malkovich.

Run time: 1 hour, 53 minutes.
