Calgary Cinematheque presents: Michelangelo Antonioni's The Passenger (1975)
A melancholy, depressed and jaded television reporter assumes the identity of a dead man while at a hotel in a north African country, not knowing that the man was a renowned arms smuggler. The newsman sees this switch as a last desperate chance to escape his old life and start anew. However, as he begins to take on the characteristics of his new persona and understand his shady involvements, the decision becomes a risky one, which leads to an inevitable showdown.
The Passenger screens at 7:00pm on Thursday, May 17th, 2012 at the historic Plaza Theatre, located at 1133 Kensington Road NW.
$12 for the general public,
$10 for students and seniors, and
$8 for Cinematheque members.
Memberships and passes will be available for purchase before the screening.
