THE WITNESS

Presented at:

How does a construction contractor from a tough Brooklyn neighborhood become an impassioned animal advocate? In the award-winning documentary The Witness, Eddie Lama explains how he feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals and bring his message of compassion to the streets of New York.
