Israeli producer Sipur has partnered with broadcaster HOT Channel 8 and local prodco HSCC to produce a feature documentary around the 7 October attack by Hamas on the international Tribe of Nova’s Supernova Music Festival.
Led by director Yariv Mozer (The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes, Ben Gurion: Epilogue), the documentary examines how the event focused on music, love and freedom devolved into a massacre earlier this month.
Sipur has acquired exclusive material from participants at the festival and the filmmakers will present an in-depth look at the festival before, during and after the attack. It will include interviews with investigators, soldiers and journalists, as well as unseen footage gathered from the festival-goers.
“I have seen things in my life. I have lived through wars; I have fought in wars and I have even filmed during a war. But nothing prepared me to the harsh images I have seen in the remains of the massacre that took place at the Nova music festival,” said Mozer.
“I see it as my duty as a documentary filmmaker to bring to the world the testimonies and horrific stories from the survivors of this slaughter. Young women and men whose only sin was their desire for music, and the passion to celebrate free love, spirit and freedom.”
Sipur CEO Emilio Schenker added, “We have moved quickly to make this documentary, because we believe it is imperative to do everything in our power to shine a light on the greatest evil committed against our people since the Holocaust.”
