docLOVE The Colonel’s Stray Dogs (Isivivana)

April 14 @ 18:00 - 20:00

Please join docLOVE for a special screening of The Colonel’s Stray Dogs directed by DFA member Khalid Shamis and produced by Steven Markovitz and Khalid Shamis.
Free, unreserved seating and Khayelitsha residents will be able to access transport home after the screening
For over 40 years Ashur Shamis was a member of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood and Colonel Gadaffi’s enemy number one in exile with a $1m bounty on his head. His dream of a ‘free’ Libya almost cost him his life and his family. When the 2011 revolution rid the country of their dictator, Ashur finally returned home to a hero’s welcome but soon found a land vastly different to the one he left. As Libya slipped into civil war he was rejected by the new country and found himself exiled once again. His dream of Libya now distorted, Ashur’s son uncovers a dangerous past and questions the choices his father made to inherit the mess Gadaffi left.
The docLOVE programme is supported by the Presidential Employment Stimulus Programme (PESP3) administered by the NFVF.
