Schindler’s List


Location: Redstone Theater

Introduced by Reverse Shot writer Chris Wisniewski

Dir. Steven Spielberg. 1993, 195 mins. 35mm. Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley. The film that certified Spielberg in many critics’ and moviegoers’ eyes as a serious American filmmaker, as well as one of the most important and beloved American films ever made, Schindler’s List is a tale of ultimate good and unimaginable evil, starring a towering Neeson as a German industrialist whose enamelware plant becomes a protective haven for Jews in Krakow during World War II. Full of images that once seen can never be forgotten, many of them captured in a radical vérité style by cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, a crucial Spielberg collaborator from this point on, this is a film of unrelenting visual brilliance and humanist sensitivity. Winner of seven Academy Awards, including best picture and director.

Proceeds from this special screening benefit USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education, dedicated to making audio-visual interviews with survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides a compelling voice for education and action.
