To the Libya of the Arab Spring. Ten years after our team’s last visit there for the filming of The Oath of Tobruk. As in May 2011, Misrata is our destination.
On the road to Leptis Magna. At that ancient site Bernard-Henri Lévy’s appealed for a truce in 2011. Upon our return, one hears only the echo of his voice and of waves breaking on the steps of the amphitheater.
In Tarhuna, we hear the sound of another music. That of bullets ricocheting off the windows and sides of armored vehicles. Who is behind the ambush of our convoy? Who seeks to silence the voice of Bernard-Henri Lévy?
At the Roman site of Leptis Magna, escorted by special forces sent by the Minister of the Interior, Fathi Bashagha, on July 25.
Tarhouna — the escort that will allow Bernard-Henri Lévy and the photographers Gilles Hertzog and Marc Roussel to escape their ISIS attackers.
