The Passenger

The Passenger

film-roll Finland / Color / 28' / 2012

The Passenger is a creative documentary that deals with a heavy historical subject: The treatment of Jewish people in Poland during the WWII. It is a thrilling survival story of a young man, a boy, really. The cleverly constructed film is of interest to everyone, but it is made especially with young people in mind. Those who have grown up in a welfare state during peacetime, are vaccinated and have plenty of money to spend.
