Fifty years ago, the name Kitty Genovese became synonymous with urban apathy after news that she was stabbed to death on a Queens street while 38 witnesses in nearby apartments did nothing. Forty years later, her brother Bill, who was 16 at the time of his sister’s death, decides to find the truth buried beneath the story. In the process, he uncovers a lie that transformed his life, condemned a city, and defined an era.

Bill Genovese, Director James D. Solomon and Producer Melissa Jacobson scheduled to attend.
