Schindler’s List will air on USA Network at 8 PM Saturday, February 23 as part of USA’s public service campaign Characters Unite, a program created to promote greater tolerance and acceptance. It will be presented commercial-free with a personal introduction by director Steven Spielberg.
The broadcast is in commemoration of USA’s third Character Unite month and coincides with the film’s 20th anniversary. “Without question, Schindler’s List is one of the most powerful films I’ve ever seen,” NBC Universal Cable Entertainment Chairman Bonnie Hammer said today in a statement. “It’s the ultimate example of the profound difference an individual can make when he takes a stand against hate and intolerance.”
