UC Irvine Today

Organ Transplant Cinema from Hong Kong to the World

Reading against examples of organ transplant cinema from the U.S. and Europe, this talk interprets Danny and Oxide Pang’s 2002 film The Eye, a horror film about a blind woman who receives a corneal transplant from a woman who suffers from frightening visions, as a symbolic representation of millennial fears about the interpenetration of class and corporeality in transnational economies at the turn of the 21st century.
