The short is the third episode of the 18 sci-fi short films that make up the anthological series of self-contained stories “Love, Death + Robots“, produced by Tim Miller and David Fincher and distributed by Netflix.
With “The Witness” the Spanish animation takes the lead with a short that has been rated as the best, impressive, and most elaborate of the series thanks to its spectacular scene, the use of colors and a successful music. After seeing a brutal murder, a woman (Emily O’Brien) flees from the killer through the streets of a surreal city.
