Descripción del programa


The name "Kitty Genovese" became synonymous with urban apathy after The New York Times printed an article stating that she was stabbed to death during an attack that lasted more than half an hour, while 38 witnesses did nothing. Fifty years later, her brother uncovers a lie that transformed his life, condemned a city, and defined an era.

Winner of Best Feature Documentary at the Boulder International Film Festival. Nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Critic's Choice Documentary Awards.

"An engrossing detective story, an enlightening sociological study, and a heartbreaking story of unreconciled grief, THE WITNESS is one of the best documentaries of 2016." - Peter Keough, Boston Globe

"Skillful, complex, and purposely understated, THE WITNESS succeeds not just as a re-examination of one of the most talked-about crimes in modern memory, but as a very touching, human tale of a brother trying to get to know the sister he lost too soon." - Alex Segura, Under the Radar
