Presented by the UC Center for Film and Media Studies and part of the 2019 UC European Film Festival

Pasażerka tells the story of former SS member, Liza, who was a guard at the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. She enslaves Polish prisoner Marta and psychological warfare ensues between the two. Years later, Liza believes the only witness to her crime to be dead. Then she sees the face of a passenger and the memories will come flooding back. Director Andrzej Munk died in a car accident before completing the film and the unfinished result is one of the most gripping cinematic depictions of the Holocaust. Introduced by Evan Torner from the University of Cincinnati. (In Polish with English subtitles.) (120 min)
