Passengers brings together artists that have an interest in the real and imaginative environments we construct and inhabit. The title references the 1975 film The Passenger by Michelangelo Antonioni that uses the Brunswick as a powerful and otherworldly mise-en-scène.

Chicago Reader review:
A masterpiece, one of Michelangelo Antonioni's finest works (1975). Jack Nicholson and Maria Schneider star as a journalist who trades one identity for another and the woman who becomes his accomplice (and ultimately the moral center of his adopted world). Less a thriller (though the mood of mystery is pervasive) than a meditation on the problems of knowledge, action for its own sake, and the relationship of the artist to the work he brings into being. Next to this film, Blowup seems a facile, though necessary, preliminary. By all means go.
