Dori Media Group (“DMG”, “the Company”) announces that it has sold the 100-minute feature film, “The Raft” to WarnerMedia Latin America for the streaming platform HBO Max and also linear rights for basic and premium pay tv.
“The Raft” premiered in Israel in July, 2021, with huge success and popularity. It is a Dori Media production in collaboration with Herzliya Studios.
This Israeli Adventure/Drama feature film is aimed at kids and teens and follows three teen boys and a girl. When Israel’s soccer team wins a crucial match and has a chance to reach the world cup, these four diehard soccer fans are determined not to miss the game, even when it is moved to the nearby island of Cyprus. Inspired by the mythological journey of Kon-Tiki, they manage to construct a DIY raft on their own and cross a stretch of the Mediterranean Sea in an attempt get to the fateful match on time.
During their three-day journey, their friendship is put to the test, they savor the taste of first love, and discover character traits and abilities in themselves that they never knew they had. The innocent adventure evolves into a coming-of-age journey, and the adventure of a lifetime.
