This episode of the podcast focuses on the new documentary, The Witness, about Bill Genovese’s search for the truth behind the story of his beloved sister, Kitty Genovese. The story of Kitty’s gruesome murder in 1964 in the Kew Gardens neighborhood of Queens is, of course, a seminal part of New York City’s history. Joining me in this special segment is Bill and director of The Witness, Jim Solomon.
The Witness is being distributed by FilmRise and is currently playing at the IFC Center in New York City. For a full list of where the film is screening, visit the website.
