About this project
On February 17, 2011 in Benghazi, the youth of Libya took it upon themselves to step up, and take action against the injustices taking place in their homeland. Kids as young as 15 fought selflessly against their government in order to bring about change; a change that meant the generations to come wouldn’t have to grow up in the same state of fear that the previous generations were subjugated to.
There are so many magnificent, inspiring, wonderful stories of the different journeys that so many of these young individuals embarked on almost a year ago. Although so many of these stories are impressively beautiful, many of them are not being told.
In January of 2012, young American collegiate filmmaker Jake Broido (20) will take his first steps on African Soil with his camera rolling. As he seeks out and meets with the young individuals who played vital roles in this revolution he will give them a chance to tell their story the way they wish it to be told. No news crews, no media spins, just raw stories that have the potential to completely change the youth in other countries’ outlook on social conflict.
It’s time, time for them to tell their stories; the stories of young Libyan rebels.
