Film Details

Associate producer Maria Valva in person!


United States | 2015 | James D. Solomon


In 1964, it was widely reported that a 28-year-old New Yorker named Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death outside her Queens apartment while 38 onlookers did nothing to help. Genovese’s name became synonymous with “bystander apathy.” Fifty years later, Kitty’s younger brother Bill looks anew at this incident that transformed his life, condemned a city, and defined an era. This acclaimed documentary reveals the truth he uncovered. Cleveland premiere. DCP. 89 min.

Maria Valva, the film's associate producer, will introduce the screening and do a post-film Q&A.
