leave a comment »

Revanche, an Austrian film by Gotz Spielmann, will kick off the 2009 Passport Series at the Ragtag Cinema tonight at 7 p.m.

The film takes place in Vienna where an ex-crook (Johannes Krisch) is working in a brothel. He falls in love with a Ukrainian hooker (Irina Potapenko), makes a terrible attempt at a robbery and meets various other people with dark stories to tell.

Brad Prager, a Mizzou professor German and Film Studies, will be the “tour guide” for the show.

The Passport Series will take place each Wednesday and Thursday evening at 7 p.m. through mid-October.

Next week’s film is Night and Day, a Korean film about an art student traveling through Paris and trying to find love and meaning.
