After a Revolution

War and an uncertain future are a part of life for two siblings, brother and sister, who are trying to live on despite complicated developments in post-revolutionary Libya.

Libya has been marked by numerous armed conflicts and destabilisation in the years following the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. “Nothing to think about except war,” is heard in the intro to this powerful dramatic story of a family from Bani Walid. Two siblings, both uncompromising personalities and important players in local revolutionary events, try to work for the good of their country each in their own way. Brother, who stands on the side of Gaddafi’s loyalists, deals with personal crises and remains in his native town. Sister has joined the rebels, going on to run for political office and speaking in favour of freedom and peace in Libya and in the international arena. Although their lives are distant, brother and sister always remain close.
