The film, which name is Munich: A Palestinian Story, was screened without any delays as it was previously planned.
Speaking to Electronic Intifada Nasri Hajjaj from Cannes, saying that the screening of a 14-minute segment passed without incident and he received a positive response from those present.
France’s main pro-Israel lobby group CRIF had been exerting intense pressure on authorities to ban the film, even enlisting the support of the mayor of Cannes.
CRIF claimed that the film engages in “historical revisionism” about the 1972 raid on Munich Olympics by the Palestinian group Black September, in which 11 Israeli athletes, a German police officer and five hostage takers died.
But CRIF could not know this since the unfinished documentary had never been publicly screened.
Hajjaj said that CRIF and other critics have made a number of false claims about his film, which they have not seen.
CRIF boss Roger Cukierman even claimed on Twitter that he had been personally assured by Cannes Film Festival President Pierre Lescure that Hajjaj’s film would not be shown.

Some Jewish communal media in France have continued to report falsely that CRIF succeeded in getting the screening cancelled through pressure on festival management and contacts with government officials.
The clip also shows that the screening was attended by Ken Loach, who won Cannes’ top prize, the Palme d’Or, in 2006.
The Marché du Film bills itself as “the most important event of the film industry and the meeting point of more than 11,000 professionals, including 3,200 producers, 2,300 distributors’ rooms, 1,500 sellers and 790 festival organizers.”
Thus the failure of CRIF to block the showing of Hajjaj’s work is a victory against censorship of free speech and art connected with Palestine.
