Directed by renowned French philosopher, journalist and filmmaker Bernard-Henri Lévy, THE OATH OF TOBRUK was made over the eight-month period of conflict that put an end to Moammar Qaddafi's reign in Libya. Levy documented the unfolding of the war and the spontaneous popular revolt that became a revolution through the efforts of the Libyan people in their country and in major cities including Paris, London and New York. The course of action taken by the Libyan people that was revealed in THE OATH OF TOBRUK exemplifies how ideas and convictions can change the course of history in the form of a political and humanitarian intervention that had otherwise seemed impossible.
