Another visual clue. The question has two parts and one needs to answer both.
You can see the actual photographic capture of an iconic event in the history of the world. Many films, over the years, have used this event as a backdrop in their story. The event has also been dramatically reenacted in numerous feature films, documentaries and TV shows.
For getting the full credits, you'll need to identify the event depicted in the photograph and tell me the name of the Oscar winning film released in 1998, which started with the dramatic representation of this particular event.

Answer: As usual, my anonymous friend is absolutely right. The photograph shows the action on D-Day in 1944, when the Allied troops landed at Normandy in France. This actually started a chain reaction and was the first time during WWII that the Germans lost in mainland Europe.
The 1998 Oscar winning film is Saving Private Ryan by Steven Spielberg. The film opened with the D-Day scene when a group of US soldiers landed on the Omaha beach and their fight with the entrenched Germans.
