This movie is the perfect remedy for the times we are in. If you want something to renew your faith in humanity, restore your hope that kindness can sprout in unexpected places, or you wish to be reminded that people are far more than the superficial persona we first see when we meet them, "The Witness" will touch your heart, and leave you better than before you saw it.

More people should see through the eyes of Eddie Lama. Giving a powerful voice to does who cannot speak for themselves. Powerful and moving.

An interesting view into a bronx-raised man who goes from watching animals abused to becoming an animal hero. Despite the fact that it features Eddie talking most of the time, it is interesting to hear from people in his office, to see him undertake public education and witness people's reactions.

Eddie's incredible story is a testiment to the compassionate potential of humans and animals. His life was changed by one little kitten. He grew to love and respect animals by realizing that their feelings of happiness and fear were the same as humans'. Eddie is a positive force in his community, through his educational program and rescue center, as well as through his personal example. I hope others will be moved to think, feel, and understand in watching this movie.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Several clips of how animals are treated in order to produce fur and a few clips of how they are treated to produce food. I simply looked away for these segments.
