THE WITNESS

THE WITNESS

The murder of Kitty Genovese in 1964 is often cited as a prime example of the bystander effect—but is that what really happened? This eye-opening and emotional 2016 documentary follows Genovese's brother Bill as he doggedly tracks down people who lived in her building to find out who heard or saw what, and if witnesses truly did nothing to help her. The result is not only a riveting detective story, but also a poignant lesson on bias, perception, and the forces that shape the popular consciousness. Grades 9 and up. Color and black-and-white. English with English subtitles. 89 minutes. Five More Minutes Productions.
