Victim of the Brain

Victim of the Brain is a 1988 film by Dutch director Piet Hoenderdos, loosely based on The Mind's I (1981), a compilation of texts and stories on the philosophy of mind and self, co-edited by Douglas Hofstadter and Daniel C. Dennett. The film weaves interviews with Hofstadter with adaptations of several works in the book: Dennett's Where am I?, The Soul of the Mark III Beast by Terrel Miedaner, and also the short story The Seventh Sally: How Trurl's Own Perfection Led to No Good from The Cyberiad by Stanisław Lem. The film was shown several times on television in the Netherlands in the late 1980s.
