Ban This Series: LIBYA IN MOTION
Ban This Series: Documentaries from the seven countries included in the travel ban enacted by executive order on January 27, 2017.
From Tripoli to Benghazi, meet a grandmother sowing the national flag with relish, a young woman determined to become a film director, a fisherman philosopher, illegal migrants caught in limbo in a detention centre, a group of young filmmakers trying to fund their fiction film and many more. Made up of 13 short docs, Libya in Motion is an on-the-ground peek into the day-to-day resilience of those living in post-revolution Libya. Shot over the course of several years, the filmmakers chart the immediate wake of the civil war up to 2015, revealing remarkable stories of courage, recovery and struggle.
