Schindler’s List a gem of the late 90s

Schindler's List premiered in Washington, D.C. on November 30, 1993, and was distributed in the United States on December 15, 1993.

Steven Spielberg directed and produced Schindler’s List, a 1993 American epic historical drama film written by Steven Zaillian. It is based on Australian novelist Thomas Keneally’s 1982 historical fiction novel Schindler’s Ark.

The film follows Oskar Schindler’s , a German industrialist who, with his wife Emilie, worked in his factories during World War II to save over a thousand predominantly Polish-Jewish refugees from the Holocaust. Liam Neeson portrays Schindler, Ralph Fiennes portrays SS officer Amon Göth, and Ben Kingsley performs Schindler’s Jewish accountant Itzhak Stern.

As early as 1963, ideas for a film about the Schindlerjuden were floated. Schindlerjuden, Poldek Pfefferberg, made it his life’s purpose to share Schindler’s narrative. So when Spielberg received a book review of Schindler’s Ark from executive Sidney Sheinberg, he became interested. Universal Pictures purchased the novel’s rights, but Spielberg, wondering if he was ready to direct a Holocaust picture, tried out numerous directors before opting to handle it himself.

In 1993, the principal photography took place over 72 days in Kraków, Poland. Spielberg shot the picture in black and white and treated it like a documentary. Janusz Kaminski, the cinematographer, attempted to convey a sense of timelessness. The central theme was played by violinist Itzhak Perlman, who composed the score.

Schindler’s List premiered in Washington, D.C. on November 30, 1993, and was distributed in the United States on December 15, 1993.

On March 9, 2004, the DVD was released in widescreen and full-screen formats, on a double-sided disc with the feature film starting on side A and continuing on side B. A documentary narrated by Steven Spielberg is among the extras. A limited-edition gift package containing the widescreen version of the film, Keneally’s novel, the film’s music on CD, a genotype, and a photo booklet titled Schindler’s List: Images of the Steven Spielberg film was also available for both formats, all contained in a plexiglass case.  The original text and an exclusive photo booklet were all included in this limited edition laserdisc gift package. A special screening is commemorating the film’s 20th anniversary.
