Philosophy @ the Movies: Paprika

October 11, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join the Philosophy Department for a viewing of Paprika (2007)!

Dr. Atsuko Chiba works as a scientist by day and, under the code name “Paprika,” is a dream detective at night. Atsuko and her colleagues are working on a device called the DC Mini, which is intended to help psychiatric patients, but in the wrong hands it could destroy people’s minds. When a prototype is stolen, Atsuko/Paprika springs into action to recover it before damage is done.
