Ali Tweel and his brother Abdul Hakeem Amer Tweel lived in central Tripoli during the 2011 Libyan civil war. Under the cover of darkness Ali & Abdul Hakeem filmed hundreds of NATO sorties bombing the nearby Bab Al Aziyah - Gaddafi's feared compound. Together the brothers armed themselves with cameras, instead of weapons and Ali joined the "online army" risking his life everyday tweeting undercover as @TrablesVoice. He tweeted crucial & reliable information to the outside world during the long media crackdown & internet blackout in Tripoli. Three months after the fall of Tripoli and the end of the Civil War, Ali & Abdul Hakeem reminisce and reflect on what it was like living under 42 years of fear and repression under the rule of Gaddafi.
A longer film of the brothers work during the Revolution is coming soon.
