The name Kitty Genovese became synonymous with bystander apathy after The New York Times reported that 38 witnesses watched her being murdered - and did nothing to help.
The Witness, which premiered to critical acclaim at the 2015 New York Film Festival, follows her brother Bill's search for the truth. In the process, he unravels a myth that transformed his life, condemned a city, and defined an era. The Witness debunks one of America's most chilling crime stories as a brother reclaims his sister's forgotten life from her infamous death. Come see the film that is The New York Times and Los Angeles Times Critics' Pick.
