The Witness Movie Screening

In the award-winning documentary THE WITNESS, Eddie Lama explains how he feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals and bring his message of compassion to the streets of New York. With humor and sincerity, Eddie tells the story of his remarkable change in consciousness.

Join us for a screening of The Witness at the Minnehaha Free Space on April 7th at 7pm.

This is will be community engagement and education at its best! After the movie ends we’ll have time to discuss the documentary.

    Check out this review of The Witness. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and watching this movie together! Please feel free to bring anyone else that would like to come, we'll have plenty of space!

    "A construction contractor who grew up on the mean streets of Brooklyn, Eddie Lama is probably the last person you'd figure to be an animal activist. Indeed, Eddie was raised with a deeply ingrained aversion to animals, as he explains in the award-winning documentary "The Witness." But when a pretty woman asks him to take care of her kitten, he finds himself reluctantly agreeing as a ploy to get a date, not knowing that his life is about to change forever. In the end, it is the kitten who captures his heart, opening his eyes to the wonder of other living creatures and awakening him to the richness of the human-animal bond. "
