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,
