This chapter focuses on the making of Schindler’s List, a three-hour, black-and-white film about the Holocaust that became the transforming experience of Spielberg’s lifetime. After more than a decade of hesitation and avoidance, making the film was the catharsis that finally liberated Spielberg to be himself, both as a man and as an artist, fully integrating those two, sometimes distinct-seeming halves of his personality.
