This story of survival and hope is timeless and classic; much like the black and white treatment to give it its classy cinematic look.
The chance of directing the 1993 film adaptation almost slipped Spielberg’s hands. The director declined to direct the film several times before finally agreeing to take the helm. ‘Schindler’s List’ is the film adaptation of Australian novelist Thomas Keneally’s work entitled ‘Schindler’s Ark.’ The film went on to win seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director for Steven Spielberg and Best Adapted Screenplay for Steven Zaillian.
Set against the backdrop of World War II, ‘Schindler’s List’ is about the salvation of more than a thousand Polish Jews with the help of German industrialist Oskar Schindler. The movie was not without conflict as the scenes were rife with drama. Tension was also a main factor in Spielberg’s storytelling technique.
Acting was also a huge factor in the movie’s success. Roles played by Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley and all other supporting actors didn’t look superficial at all. Every character contributed to the engaging storyline and overall impact of the film.
Lastly, let us not forget to give props to Steven Spielberg for his vision and execution of the film. The cinematography was superb and riveting. The scenes were expertly shot, and exquisitely done. Some of the most memorable scenes include the girl in the red coat (the only scene that included color throughout the film) and the flushing of the people from the ghettos.
Spielberg’s choice in using black and white film gave the movie the intended classic look. The three-hour masterpiece is a must-watch for any film buff and history aficionado, as well as photography enthusiasts. Spielberg’s modern classic can be a case study for great angles and shot selection.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
