The Witness is a meaningful, moving documentary about the power of compassion and how deeply an awakening in one man's life changes his world. It has been winning awards and touching the lives of audiences for almost a decade, but so far it has only been viewable by DVD. The producers of The Witness have recognized that, if we want significant positive global change, then we need to remove barriers to that change. Tribe of Heart has developed an Online Screening Room, with the intention of (eventually) making their powerful films available free online to people around the world, thus removing barriers of "language, cost, convenience, and access." The Witness is already available to view free online in English and Spanish, and it will soon be available in 10 other languages.
Additionally, TOH has made it easier for people to set up free home screenings and to spread the word about the film, by providing a platform for people to send invitations to friends and family, by making it possible to share a link to the screening room via social media, and by creating a widget for people to post on their social media and web pages.
TOH gets points on two counts: They're making their films as accessible as possible. And, the film The Witness itself is incredibly powerful and life-changing (You can view a preview below - see the whole 43 minute documentary here. Note that there are some graphic scenes of animal cruelty, so the film isn't appropriate for all ages).
Be sure to see the film, and then take advantage of the Online Screening Room and share it with friends, family and others.
