Schindler’s List (1993)

Director - Steven Spielberg, Cinematography - Janusz Kamiński

“It’s Hebrew, it’s from the Talmud. It says, “Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.” Itzhak Stern

One of the greatest movies I’ve ever seen, it tells the story of the man Oskar Schindler who during the second world war in a bid to make riches by using Jews as labour realises that by keeping his factory open he is saving hundreds of innocent lives.
