The incredible, almost impossible realism it pulls off in every frame. The haunting score. The unforgettable performances. The visually striking cinematography, from its opening shot of a Shabbat candle to a little girl in red walking through a massacre. Together, we never forget SCHINDLER’S LIST, a film whose imagery continues to stay ingrained into our souls; a film so harrowing in emotional scope that it still scars our hearts.
This is the true story of Oskar Schindler, the wealthy German businessman, and the more than 1,000 Jews – the Schindlerjuden – he saved by taking into his factory. After 30 years, SCHINDLER’S LIST remains a magnum opus of not just Holocaust cinema but international cinema, a movie of irrevocable power which cannot be emulated. Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece, winner of seven Academy Awards, excels in not just its technical achievements but its tale of an unlikely hero of the Shoah, a man who used his privilege to save countless lives.
In commemoration of its 30th anniversary, PJFM and the Weitzman Museum invite everyone to see this unforgettable tribute on the big screen.
SCHINDLER’S LIST is rated R for language, some sexuality and actuality violence.
