Schindler's List: Images of the Steven Spielberg Film by David James
Marking the 10th anniversary of the Academy Award®-winning film, first publication of this collection of stunning photographs—many never before shown. Schindler's List, a Steven Spielberg film, is a cinematic masterpiece that has become one of the most honored films of all time. Now, for the first time, this unique book captures the filmmaking experience, before and behind the cameras, during the memorable 72-day shoot in Krakow, Poland, in 1993, when an incredible cast and crew re-created the true story of the enigmatic Oskar Schindler, a Nazi party member and war profiteer, who saved the lives of more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust.
Just as Spielberg filmed the movie entirely in black-and-white, so did stills photographer David James shoot his pictures the same way. Now, Spielberg and James have selected over fifty of these stunning images for this commemorative volume, printed in a high-quality, four-color process for enhanced visual presentation. 50 b/w images.
Dreamgirls is directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay he adapted from the stage musical's original book by Tom Eyen.
