Event description

Description

Schindler's List (1993, 185 minutes)

Steven Spielberg’s epic film garnered seven Oscars in 1994 and a bevy of other awards upon its release. Frequently cited by media specialists as one of the most influential films in bringing the subject of the Holocaust into the public sphere, Schindler’s List has become a classic with audiences around the world.
Shot almost entirely in black and white, a dramatic stylistic decision, it ushered in a new era of Holocaust representation in cinema culture. It shaped public conceptualisation of the Holocaust across generations and continents. Following the critical and box office success of Schindler’s List, Spielberg founded the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation with the goal of recording as many testimonies of Holocaust survivors as possible. Now known as the USC Shoah Foundation, it is a leader not only in archiving and preserving oral testimony but also in pioneering digital technologies to ensure the use of recorded testimony far into the future.

The film will include a short introduction by a member of the Neuberger education team. Light refreshments will be served; kashruth observed. Free admission.
