IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: JANUSZ KAMINSKI - CINEMATOGRAPHER

Rate this Entry

Two Academy Awards (and 16 more nominations) and being the exclusive cinematographer for Steven Spielberg? Not too shabby for Polish immigrant Janusz Zygmunt Kami?ski. Cinematography is generally equivalent to director of photography in a movie. Kami?ski won film's highest award for his work in the memorable films Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List, arguably two of the most important movies in the last quarter century. Kami?ski immigrated to the US to become a cinematography student at Columbia College Chicago where he earned a bachelors degree and then went on to earn his masters degree at the American Film Institute.



Incidentally, he's currently working on the new Indiana Jones movie. It's about time they continued that great series of films.

    Is this the end for the Dream Act, at least for this year?

    TX:

    My source had advised me of this a while back and I had posted the following 10 days ago:

    From my Sept 17 comment:

    "Durbin will offer SA2237 DREAM Act. However, there is not enough Republican support."

    "Cornyn WILL NOT offer his SA2140 (Border Crossing Card),SA2141(International Commuters),SA2142 (limitation on Landowners Liability), SA 2143 after all. Says that they are not germaine."

    I am truly sorry that the DREAM act has suffered another setback. I know that people like Dream Act Guy and Reader1 were depending on it to pass.

    USC, Do you see any chance of it coming back this year at all? I am really diappointed in Cornyn, he's all talk and now he would'nt even do anything about the SKIL bill.

    It is indeed sad that the future of probably 1+ million kids was riding on this one bill. It is sad that republicans cannot see past their hatered of the undocumented. These kids are not going anywhere, they will grow up, probably will not go to college and go further underground, what good does that do? At least with this bill they could go to college or fight for this country. The way I look at it, this bill going down was a major loss for the entire country.

    Further to the setback suffered by the DREAM act I think all laws passed should have a provision wherein the executive branch has the power to act if in its discretion something is in the national interest. Parliamentary democracies usually have such a provision. IOW, in the context of immigration law, LPR should be given to persons if they fall in the relevant categories or if the POTUS in his discretion believes it is in the interest of justice to grant someone a GC.

    It is simply unconscienable that the INS would even be thinking about deporting 16, 17 and 18 year old kids. I don't think we should be deporting kids and traumatizing them for the rest of their lives. I am sure there are many Gonzalez brothers all over the country. GCs by registeration are available to those who have been in the country since the 1970s, why not extend this to those who were bought as kids. Why attach strings like you must go to college or join the military?

    Amazing what one can do when they put their mind to it and have a little talent. Kami?ski along with many of his colleagues at the ASC immigrated to the U.S. and are now great Cinematographers. www.rogermorse.com
