“The Passenger”
January 6, 2014 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
Described by the New York Times as a film with "the precise and harrowing balance of romantic beauty and profound terror," Andrzej Munk's “The Passenger” is considered to be a classic of Polish cinema and is one of the most audacious films made about the Holocaust. Munk, who died while filming “The Passenger” at the age of 39, based his film on the same source that Mieczyslaw Weinberg used for his opera, “The Passenger: Zofia Posmysz's radio play, Passenger from Cabin Number 45.” Munk's film was completed by his close friend Polish film director and screen writer Witold Lesiewicz. Upon its release, the film won main awards at the Cannes and Venice film festivals. This film is being presented at Holocaust Museum Houston in conjunction with the Houston Grand Opera’s presentation of the Holocaust opera “The Passenger.” Admission is free, but seating is limited, and advance registration is required.
