Tomorrow Tripoli – The Revolution of the Rats

Conflict: Libya

A film by Florent Marcie

From the start of the Libyan revolution, a small group of insurgents, far from Benghazi, defied the regime from their villages in the Nefoussa mountains. Isolated from the insurgent stronghold in eastern Libya and from the outside world, surrounded by Gaddafi’s army, they fought and reached, against all odds, one sacrifice after another, Tripoli. ‘Tomorrow Tripoli’ is telling the story of these humble and generous fighters who embraced the revolution. For eight months, the director Florent Marcie shared their destiny, filmed them and followed their crazy offensive until the fall of the dictator. ‘Tomorrow Tripoli’ is a film about the men who lived and won the revolution.

Florent Marcie began photography in 1989 during the Romanian Revolution, and then moved to documentary filmmaking. He shoots, edits and produces himself his films, all related to war. He is the director of ‘Saïa’, a short film on a frontline at night in Afghanistan, and of ‘Itchkéri Kenti’, a long documentary film on the war in Chechnya, among others. He is now working on ‘Commander Khawani’, a film which portrays an Afghan commander through 15 years of conflict.
