yes Studios takes #NOVA to Norway

April 22, 2024

#NOVA, the powerful yes Studios documentary that captures the Hamas terrorist attacks at the Nova Festival in southern Israel on October 7th 2023, has been acquired by VGTV in Norway for launch this week.

#NOVA (1 x 52) uses self-shot and mostly exclusive footage from festival attendees to chronicle, minute-by-minute, the tragic events of that day when Hamas terrorists executed more than 300 partygoers and kidnapped a further 40. The film portrays real-time reactions and emotions to the unfolding horror, transporting viewers and allowing them to decide the truth of what happened on that fateful day.

Sharon Levi, managing director of yes Studios, commented: “We are now six months on from the Nova festival and as the war continues and narratives shift daily, we are seeing new interest in this film from a range of broadcasters. #NOVA documents the brutal start of the war, an important moment in history, and captures different viewpoints without a conventional news agenda. Importantly, it also serves as a reminder that we still don’t know the fate of some of the young people kidnapped on this day.

“VGTV has a reputation for acquiring big, high-quality documentaries for its audience, and we are honoured that #NOVA is joining its line-up about the Israel-Palestine conflict. This documentary is an important, authentic and must-watch film, providing a haunting and lasting testimony to the events of the 7th of October last year. Given the self-shot and very real nature of the footage, we are especially hopeful that it will resonate with younger audiences, the TikTok generation keen to receive information – not disinformation – to understand more about the start of the war.”

#NOVA has been produced by Kastina Communications for yes Docu, with Dan Pe-er directing. yes Studios is distributing the documentary in the international marketplace.
