A screening of the documentary, Code Name: Silence, a film by Yifat Kedar and Danny Adino Abeba, will be held at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque on December 26 at 8:30 p.m. The film concerns the abuse suffered by Ethiopian Jewish immigrants on their way to Israel at the hands of the Komite - other Ethiopian Jews picked by the Mossad to assist Israel in carrying out Operation Moses in the mid-Eighties. The film focuses on Ethiopian-born Abeba, who has tried for years to get victims raped by Komite members to speak out (in the past, the victims were too ashamed and scared to go public about what happened to them) and to try to get the Israeli establishment, particularly the Mossad, to investigate these abuses. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.
