This screening is part of Lewes Holocaust Memorial Day.
Set in German-occupied Poland during World War II, Steven Spielberg's emotional masterpiece traces the gradual evolution of Oskar Schindler from profiteer, industrialist and Nazi collaborator to a humanitarian who risked his own life to save those of 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust, the film was acclaimed for its triumph in bringing attention to the personal stories of some of those caught up in the horror. This portrayal of a true story is as powerful and moving now as it was on its release, earning itself seven Academy Awards out of its twelve nominations.
'What is most amazing about this film is how completely Spielberg serves his story. The movie is brilliantly acted, written, directed and seen' - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
'It's a noble achievement, and essential viewing' - Geoff Andrew, Time Out.
