Storyline

A construction contractor who grew up on the mean streets of Brooklyn, Eddie Lama is probably the last person you'd figure to be an animal activist. Indeed, Eddie was raised with a deeply ingrained aversion to animals, as he explains in the award-winning documentary "The Witness." But when a pretty woman asks him to take care of her kitten, he finds himself reluctantly agreeing as a ploy to get a date, not knowing that his life is about to change forever. In the end, it is the kitten who captures his heart, opening his eyes to the wonder of other living creatures and awakening him to the richness of the human-animal bond. Written by Jenny Stein

The most POWERFUL documentary to date.
23 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

The Witness is the most power documentary that one can watch. After seeing this movie I have become a vegetarian, and so have many of my friends from this. It is a wonderfully directed video with a potent message. However, this message is presented in a wonderful story about an average guy from New York that becomes an animal activist. His story is truly inspirational and I urge everyone to see it.
