The Passenger tells the story of a chance postwar encounter between a former Nazi concentration camp guard and one of the prisoners she tormented during the war. Flashbacks revealing multiple versions of events offer a sophisticated exploration of issues of trauma, complicity, and ambiguity. Unseen for far too long, this is the first-ever DVD release of this unique film anywhere in the world. The DVD can be purchased from Second Run Films: http://www.secondrundvd.com/release_p.php.
