Attendees will hear from a survivor of the music festival, Yuval Siman Tov and the film’s co-producer Noam Pinchas. They will discuss how these events have changed their lives and how we all can use these experiences to bring positive change.  This is Yuval’s first time speaking in the US about his experiences.

Israel’s Consul General in Miami, Maor Elbaz-Starinsky, had this to say about the event:

I urge all those with a passion for Israel and its people in our region to mark their calendars for May 14th and join us at the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee’s Israel Unity Day. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the screening of the poignant and insightful new documentary, Supernova, followed by a captivating discussion with one of its co-creators and a truly inspiring survivor featured in the film. It promises to be a  moving, profound and unforgettable experience.

We will commemorate both Israel Memorial Day (Yom HaZikaron), and Israel Independence Day (Yom Ha’atzmaut), with remarks by Israel’s Deputy Consul General in Miami.

Film runtime: 51 minutes; in Arabic, Hebrew and English with subtitles.  Content may not be appropriate for young viewers.
