1948 Movie Overcomes West Hollywood Censorship Campaign

1948 Movie Overcomes West Hollywood Censorship Campaign

After a months-long smear campaign, the West Hollywood City Council voted 3-2 on Monday to move forward with the April 16th screening of the historical documentary 1948: Creation and Catastrophe.

The city of West Hollywood initially planned to screen the film on November 16, 2018, as part of its Human Rights Speakers Series. The film documents the founding of Israel and the forced expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes through first-hand accounts from both Israelis and Palestinians. Pro-Israel groups called for censorship over concern that historical facts paint Israel in a bad light. The screening was first postponed to December 12, 2018 and then April 16, 2019.
