Edmonton public invited to view documentary of the horrific October 7 Hamas attack

(Edmonton, AB) – Supernova: The Music Festival Massacre, the much anticipated 52- minute documentary film which unravels the dramatic events that took place during Hamas’ attack during a music rave in southern Israel, will be screened for the first time in Edmonton on Thursday, March 7 at 7 p.m. in the theatre at the Stanley A. Milner library branch.

This event coincides with the five-month anniversary of the Hamas terrorist attack on Israel on October 7, 2023. The film pieces together eyewitness accounts from survivors of the massacre and first responders, with real time footage collated from multiple sources, to provide a harrowing and detailed rundown of the events that took place at the Nova music festival in Re’im a few kilometers from the Gaza Strip on the morning of October 7.

The planned attack by Hamas on the festival, which was attended by over 3,500 people from multiple countries, was part of a series of raids on numerous Israeli targets carried out by the terror group in the early hours of a holiday weekend. 371 revelers were murdered, hundreds more wounded, with 40 taken hostage by Hamas and kidnapped into Gaza.

“We invite the public to bear witness to what transpired at Supernova. This horrific attack on innocent festival goers should always be remembered,” says Federation CEO Stacey Leavitt-Wright.

The screening of this documentary will be followed by a discussion with Yaron Deckel. One of Israel’s most influential journalists, Deckel is The Jewish Agency for Israel’s Regional Director to Canada, based in Toronto. As a political reporter and commentator for over three decades, he has developed close relationships with Israel’s top military and political decision makers and demonstrated a deep understanding of the ins-and- outs of Israeli politics and governance. The discussion will centre around the impact of the October 7 events on the local community in terms of hate and antisemitism, and about the use of sexual violence in conflict and war.

This free event is presented in partnership with Jewish Family Services Edmonton and is funded by a grant from the Government of Canada. Tickets are now available at jewishedmonton.org.
