The Witness is a film about the shortfalls of the human memory, about prejudices and the deficiency of the judiciary. If these elements come together in a case an innocent citizen might be sent to prison. The film shows the court of law as a Kafka-esque building that, as a metaphor for the entanglement, is under reconstruction. The film refers to the Schiedammer Parkmoord in the Netherlands in which also an innocent man was sent to jail for years.
