About

On March 13, 1964, Kitty Genovese was repeatedly attacked and ultimately murdered on a street in Kew Gardens, Queens. The New York Times published a front-page story soon after, asserting that 38 witnesses stood idly by, watching the horrific crime from their apartment windows. THE WITNESS follows the efforts of Kitty's brother, as he looks to uncover the truth beneath the story, making startling discoveries along the way about the crime that transformed his life, condemned a city, and defined an era.
