PASSPORT
For BFI
Producer/Director/Writer: Mira Hamermesh
 
In the JEWISH CHRONICLE, the critic wrote: 'PASSPORT is a brilliant piece of satire, based upon the fatuous, time-wasting form-filling, visa-hunting, and clashes with officialdom during a journey from England to Eastern Europe by a young man. In one episode on reaching the Iron Curtain, a Jewish traveller shows, instead of a passport, his concentration camp number on his wrist, and is duly arrested.  
 
  From an original story written by Mira Hamermesh, it was based on the author/director's experiences of travelling across the Iron Curtain during the years of her studies at the Polish Film School. (1961-65)
