Overview

Double Feature
Invisible Adversaries, Valie Export, 1976, 112 min.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Don Siegel, 1956, 80 min.

Siegel and Export explore themes of paranoia and isolation in a pair of allegorical films about the loss of identity. Siegel's original, based on Jack Finney's 1954 serial, is rife with political overtones, suggesting the tense era of McCarthyism and the Cold War, while Export imbues her 1970s film with a feminist perspective and avant-garde depictions of a psychological breakdown.
