Supernova screening: ‘The music festival massacre’

On February 7th 2024, the SAZF CC hosted the screening of SUPERNOVA, in collaboration with the Sephardi Shul. With an overwhelming attendance of over 260 people from the Cape Town community, the screening was followed by the live heart–wrenching testimony of Yuval Vaknin – a survivor of the October 7th massacre, who shared her first-hand experience with the viewers.  

The SUPERNOVA screening gave the audience a unique and comprehensive overview of the 7th  October attack at the Nova Music Festival, while simultaneously allowing viewers to witness the events and their aftermath, through the eyes of those who experienced it first-hand.

The filmmakers collected footage from dozens of different sources including Hamas’ own cameramen and Go Pros, mobile phones of the victims, and CCTV footage from first responders who were on site. Duki Dror, co-producer and director, said: “The scenes and testimonies we have documented are almost inconceivable and unprecedented.” 

We will continue to stand united as a community with Am Yisrael and pray for the release of all the hostages.
