  • In the summer of 1996, stories began to filter out of Libya about a mass killing in Tripoli's Abu Salim prison. The details remained scarce, and the government initially denied that an incident had taken place. Libyan groups outside the country said up to 1,200 prisoners had died.⠀
Stay tuned to watch the teaser of our latest short film prisoner and jailer.⠀
