After a Revolution

By Giovanni Buccomino

How does one rebuild a country once it has been devastated? Shot over six years, this profound film depicts a brother and sister torn apart by history: he fought for Gaddafi, she for the rebels. She runs for office, raises her children and travels to Switzerland to participate in peace processes while her brother stares into the distance, struggling with his own traumatic memories. But under the skin, their anger and ghosts coalesce.


This movie contains violent and graphic images that may be harmful and traumatising to some. Viewer discretion is advised.
