The Witness
submitted by [email protected]

How does a construction contractor from a tough Brooklyn neighborhood become an impassioned animal activist?

In the award-winning documentary THE WITNESS, we learn how Eddie feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals, become a vegetarian, and ultimately, to bring his message of compassion to the streets of New York City.

With humor and sincerity, Eddie tells the story of his remarkable change in consciousness, sharing along the way some of the shocking realities of the meat and fur industries.

Featuring the song "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan, this is a story of beauty and transcendence in the face of tragedy and despair.

This is a video not to be missed. For more information, including where to see upcoming screenings, see the following website:
