The film Bearing Witness featured footage documenting the attack by Hamas on October 7th, 2023, on Israel. As per ABC, the film featured extremely “graphic and violent” content as well as the footage that Hamas members shot. The event reportedly featured unedited Hamas attack videos.
Tensions between the two groups flared in LA as Gal Gadot hosted the highly controversial screening near the Museum of Tolerance on Wednesday night. Several videos of the fights between pro-Israel and pro-Palestine supporters outside the screening venue have taken over the internet.
