Movie Trailer: ’37 (The Kitty Genovese Story)’

Published: Wednesday 17th Aug 2016 by David

‘Orange is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley finds herself in dark psychological territory in her latest project this year.

Its name? ’37‘, a harrowing tale based on the true story of one Kitty Genovese who was brutally murdered in front of neighbours who did nothing to intervene as she was being stabbed to death.

Their refusal to intervene prompted psychologists to coin ‘The Genovese Syndrome‘, also known as the bystander effect.

Why the movie is called ’37’? It’s the number of witnesses who observed the murder and said and did nothing to stop it.

Press play to peep its trailer below….

Keep it locked on TGJ for details on its release date.

    looks interesting but movies like this make the angry black woman in me come out. And I have been ignoring that bish for a minute now.

    Idk I’m so tired of this obsession that America has with the race card. Don’t get me wrong i love black ppl but reverting back to the past makes us all mad instead lets try and love one another

      What are you talking about? The woman who was killed was white. Anyway, why aren’t black people allowed to discuss their experiences?

    This is exactly what black folks do in their own neighborhoods today. Just sit there and watch rapes, murders and drug dealing but won’t say anything cause “snitches get stitches”, or some stupid mess like that.

      Poor thing! Most of the onlookers in this story were white. By the way, do you have statistical proof that black people don’t report crime? If you do I’d love to see it.
