"Victim of the Brain" is a 1988 film by Dutch director Piet Hoenderdos, loosely based on "The Mind's I", 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" by Stanisław Lem. The film was shown several times on television in the Netherlands in the late eighties.
