Passing is without doubt one of the most impressive films released this year, and a truly striking debut for Rebecca Hall behind the lens. To mark this film’s release, which is theatrical this weekend ahead of a Netflix launch in a fortnight, we had the pleasure of speaking to not only the talented filmmaker, but also two of her leading stars, Ruth Negga  and André Holland. Be sure to watch both interviews in their entirety, as we discuss the film, racial identity, and of course ask Holland if he’s ever considered doing audio books…

In 1920s New York City, a Black woman finds her world upended when her life becomes intertwined with a former childhood friend who’s passing as white.
