THE WITNESS

Presented at:
Hallwalls

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. With humor and sincerity, Eddie tells the story of his remarkable change in consciousness. With pre-screening music provided by Joni Russ, of the Animal Advocates of Western New York. This screening is part of the first annual Buffalo animal rights film festival, Anima Mundi — Oct. 8-10th, 2007. For more information please visit www.animalswny.org
