OPEN SHOW SF Presents
First to Fall

VENUE: 9th Street Independent Film Center145 9th St San Francisco, CA 94103
DATE: Sept.18 (Wed) 7:00-9:15pm

First to Fall is being hailed as the defining documentary film of the Arab Spring, a series of grassroots protests and civil wars that reshaped the Arab world.

This coming of age story follows two young friends, Hamid (26) and Tarek (21), who abandon their peaceful lives as students in Canada to join an unconventional war in their homeland of Libya. Despite never having fired a gun, the pair recklessly run toward the war, fueled by their hatred of Muammar Gaddafi and their desire to be a part of history.

For eight months, director (and Open Show Cairo founder) Rachel Beth Anderson documented the raw, personal moments of their lives, along with the chaos, violence and giddiness of revolution.

After the screening Rachel will talk about her experiences making a film on the frontlines of war and answer questions from the audience.
