• Dir: Andrzej Munk

  • Poland, 1963, 60 minmins, 35mm

  • Cast: Aleksandra Slaska, Anna Ciepielewska, Jan Kreczmar

Munk’s last film presented a new dimension to freedom, though he was unable to accomplish due to his accidental death. Taking over the unfinished task, his former collaborators put together a significant part of the film, bridging scenes together with narration. On a cruise, a woman’s encounter with someone from her past forces her to remember her days as an “overseer” in a Nazi concentration camp and her battle of wills with one of the prisoners. A harrowing depiction of the Holocaust, the footage gathered here hint that Passenger would’ve easily been the director’s masterpiece.
