Captain Nova opens Cinekid
The world’s biggest platform for children’s films and media, opens its 35th edition with the world premiere of Captain Nova. A modern and thrilling sci-fi film from director Maurice Trouwborst. This exciting sci-fi film begins in 2050. The earth is in such a terrible state that fighter-pilot Nova (Anniek Pheifer) goes back in time to 2024 to try and prevent an environmental disaster. But because of the effects of time travel, she looks like her 11-year-old self and no one takes her seriously. The one exception is Nas (Marouane Meftah), a teenager who helps her with her mission. Will the 11-year-old Nova (Kika van de Vijver), together with Nas, be able to save the world?
