Libyan rebels fly to Bosnia to see revolution film

By From page B3 | July 04, 2014

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Some 120 Libyan rebels have chartered a plane and traveled to Sarajevo to watch the premiere of a documentary about their revolution.

French director Florent Marcie filmed the insurgents from the Libyan town of Zintan from the start of the Libyan uprising to the fall of leader Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. He was screening his film ‘Tomorrow, Tripoli’ on Thursday for the first time at Sarajevo’s WARM festival.

The movie got its title from a popular promise the insurgents used to boost themselves for eight months.

Marci said the Zintan fighters immediately applied for Bosnian visas and chartered a plane when he told them the screening would be in Sarajevo.

The excited rebels recorded the 4 1/2 hour long movie with their smartphones until their batteries died.
