About the Event
International entertainers are besieged by pressure to boycott Israel with an antisemitic smear tactic that spans the globe. Behind it all is the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, an intimidation network masquerading as a human rights movement. Industry insider and activist Lana Melman puts BDS on trial, exposing its strategy of using celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, the Rolling Stones and more as pawns in its destructive crusade.
Author Lana Melman has been a leading expert in the fight against BDS since 2011. As a Hollywood liaison, she has worked with hundreds of artists targeted by BDS. A twenty-year veteran of the entertainment industry, her previous career included business and creative positions at CBS, Warner Bros. and Paramount.
