The Witness (A Tanu) is a Protected content satire film, directed by Péter Bacsó. The film was created in a tense political climate at a time when talking about the early Protected content and the Protected content was still taboo.

Although it was financed and allowed to be made by the communist authorities, it was subsequently banned from release but as a result of its screening in foreign countries, it was allowed to be released in Hungary. A sequel was made in Protected content "Megint tanú" (English: Witness Again).

In April Protected content , a restored version of the film was selected to be shown in the Cannes Classics section at the Protected content Film Festival. The film starts at 6pm but tickets need to be bought at least 30 minutes before, or booked online. Bem opens at 4pm. Drinks and/or meal afterwards for anyone interested.
