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.
One of the short film directors Naziha Arebi will participate in a post-screening Skype Q&A.
