The Structures of Memory. The images of space-time in Andrzej Munk’s film "Passenger"

Title variants
Languages of publication
"Passenger" was the last and uncompleted film by Andrzej Munk who died tragically in 1961. The film was finished by Munk’s friends and collaborators on the basis of the footage left by the director. It is known that Munk was not fully satisfied with all the material and planned to introduce some changes. The film combines in an unusual way two forms of "records of memory" – photography and film. In a very interesting argument Kwiatkowska juxtaposes and interprets various spaces of remembrance that can be found in the movie.
