Steven Spielberg

2014

Steven Spielberg is one of the geniuses of our times; he is the Einstein memoirist of our human legacies.

 

Through the powerful medium of movie-making, he rescues history from the yellowed pages of unopened tomes, the boring archives of musty academic basements, the dump yards of political neglect, and brings it to life before our very eyes.  With relentless research for authenticity and the ruthless brush of truth, he recreates the private struggles of public figures, the small personal braveries of modest men, the minute moments that made monumental human history.  Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, Armistad, Lincoln.  He lays before us the complex conditions of dangerous times, reminding us of what brought us here, humbling us to our rightful stature.

 

His is a gift of immeasurable value.
