Kitty Genovese became synonymous with apathy after news that she was stabbed to death on a New York City street while 38 witnesses did nothing. Forty years later, her brother decides to find the truth. He uncovers a lie that transformed his life, condemned a city, and defined an era.
A discussion with film subject Bill Genovese and director James D Solomon will follow the screening.
All screenings start at 7:00 pm and take place at Emerson’s Paramount Center Bright Family Screening Room, located at 559 Washington Street, Boston. Seating is first come, first served. There is no advance registration.
