Supernova: The Music Festival Massacre
Directed by: Duki Dror and Yossi Bloch
(Israel 2023, 52 mins, Hebrew, Arabic with English subtitles)


Synopsis:

The massacre at the Supernova Festival in the Negev desert marks a historic turning point for Israel: On October 7th, 2023 at 06:30 AM, Hamas terrorists broke through the borders from Gaza into Israel, launching a planned and coordinated attack. Among their targets - a yearly techno music festival with over 3500 young revelers in attendance. Soon the festival grounds turned into a scene of horror: Over 370  people were brutally murdered, hundreds wounded and 40 kidnapped and taken as hostages. The festival attack at Re’im was one of Hamas' first targets and the start of the war that continues to this day.

In this emotional film, survivors, first responders and parents recount their stories and the horrors they witnessed. Filmed just a few days after the events, their trauma is evident, their grief over friends lost is palpable, their continued fear is apparent.

The attacks were documented in real time, and for the first time - by both perpetrators and victims. Using materials meticulously collected from dozens of sources, including Hamas’ own cameramen and GoPros, survivors’ mobile phones, CCTV footage, dash cams and from first responders on site-  providing unprecedented insight into the massacre
