Former Libya rebels light up Sarajevo film festival

Libyans rush to the streets as they celebrate the arrest of Seif Al-Islam Kadhafi in Zintan on November 19, 2011Hundreds of former Libyan rebels gathered in Sarajevo on Thursday to see the world premiere of a documentary dedicated to their 2011 fight against Moamer Kadhafi’s regime. The four-hour documentary “Tomorrow, Tripoli” by French director Florent Marcie depicts the everyday experiences of fighters in Zintan, the West Libyan hill town that was among the first to fall into rebel hands after an armed uprising broke out against Kadhafi in February 2011. A scene in the film shows the death of Mohammed Ali Madani, founder of the rebel Zintan Brigade that would go on to capture Kadhafi’s son Seif in November 2011.
