On October 7, the Palestinian Islamist militant group Hamas launched its deadliest attack on Israel in years. Gal Gadot, an Israeli actress, has now organized a screening of the graphic footage from the Hamas attack. It will be screened in Los Angeles and New York to an audience of prominent Hollywood figures. The footage has been aired under the title ‘Bearing Witness to the October 7th Massacre’.
As per media reports, the harrowing footage was shown to a select group of journalists in Israel on October 23 by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Later, in London, another screening was held for UK journalists.
According to The Jewish Chronicle reports, over 120 prominent figures in Hollywood have been invited to the screening organized by Gal Gadot. During the event, filming or using a phone is strictly prohibited.
The screening date and guest list have yet to be announced. The American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League are assisting in the organization of screenings of the footage.
Gadot has yet to make a public statement on the screenings. In any case, she has frequently voiced her support for Israel.
