The Witness

In 1964, Kitty Genovese became synonymous with urban apathy after news that she was stabbed to death on a New York City street while 38 witnesses did nothing. Forty years later, her brother decides to find the truth. He uncovers a lie that transformed his life, condemned a city and defined an era.

James D. Solomon‘s acclaimed new documentary The Witness is a deeply moving, intense, and riveting film about the decades-long trauma left in the wake of Kitty Genovese’s 1964 murder, which left an indelible mark on her family, friends, and the culture of New York City.

“…seamless.” (New York Times Critics’ Pick)

“… unites drama, journalism, and first-hand experience in a masterstroke of pure cinema.” (The New Yorker)

The Witness paints a picture of a complicated, magnetic woman tragically cut down in her prime.” (Vogue)

“With its film-noirish feel and deeply personal angle, the film flows in a way that is reminiscent of Chinatown… It’s like a visualized, yet more deeply personal Serial. (Vice)
