FIRST TO FALL
Directed by Rachel Beth Anderson
Neither Tarek Muhammed nor Hamid Fije have ever picked up a loaded gun, let alone fired at an enemy combatant. They represent an entire generation of young Libyan men who grew up playing snipers in the video game, Call of Duty, never expecting to become ones in real life. Their evolution from twenty-something civilians—young and idealistic– to action-chasing soldiers is swift, brutal, and documented firsthand.
This is a story of selfless sacrifice, of transformation, of loss of innocence, and of rebellion in its purest, most passionate form.
