Press Release: Screening of “Screams Before Silence”

Call to Action: Scooter Braun and Daphna Edwards Ziman Host a Private Screening of “Screams Before Silence” to Unify With Women and Multifaith Organizations to Jointly End the Violence Against Women and Children.

In an effort to alert the community on the horrific treatment by Hamas on women, men, and children, a private screening of “Screams Before Silence” will be held on July 15, 2024, at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles. Led by Daphna E. Ziman, Co-Founder and President of Cinemoí, and Founder of Justice for Women International/Children Uniting Nations, she will co-host this private screening with Scooter Braun, Music Executive and activist against antisemitism to condemn the inhumane acts displayed by Hamas. With the support from Steve Tisch, Saban Theatre Supporting Arts Center; Rabbi Baron, Temple of the Arts at Saban Theatre; and StandWithUs, we are proud to host this private event.

Screams Before Silence” is a documentary film on the sexual violence committed by Hamas on October 7, 2023, where women and girls were raped, assaulted, mutilated, tortured in addition to men being forced into sexual acts. This presenter-led documentary film by Sheryl Sandberg, former COO of Meta, provides a reality of the Hamas massacres through the lens of hostage survivors, rape victims, multiple eyewitnesses, first responders as well as medical and forensic experts. With the release of this documentary, “Screams Before Silence” has been featured on CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Deadline, The New York Times, and many other media outlets for Sheryl’s bold move to bring light to these attacks by Hamas.

This is more than just a private screening; it is a call to action uniting multiple organizations to stand in solidarity that these inhumane acts are beyond the tipping point of humanity. This is a global issue that must never be tolerated and calls for action instead of silence on such inhumane acts.
