The documentary Hotel Palestine: Killing the Witness will be screened in English followed by a discussion as part of the Eyes Wide Open Film Series presented by U.S. Citizens for Peace & Justice - Rome.

Film Synopsis:
The Palestine Hotel was to be a safespace in Baghdad for members of the media who were capturing the essence of war in Iraq through various mediums to inform the people. The Pentagon was told their location coordinates, and the journalists felt secure in the promise that the firing would not be targeted towards their site. But on April 8th, a U.S. tank aimed and fired at the floor where Jose Couso was set up with his camera. The U.S. government continues to tell conflicted stories as to what happened that day.

Hotel Palestine: Killing the Witness exposes the truth behind an attack on a media-filled hotel in Iraq. The film was produced by Jose Couso's network, Telecinco, and broadcast on Spanish TV. It includes interviews with numerous journalists who were inside the Palestine Hotel, the AP reporter embedded with US forces at the time of the attack as well as the US tank commander who pulled the trigger.
