NEW The Third Brigade on the BSL Zone player and on television from 8am on Monday 25th February.
This documentary follows an extraordinary group fighting alongside Libyan rebels: the Deaf Brigade. In French sign language with English subtitles. A co-production between Point Du Jour and RTS.
In February 2011, a civil uprising took place in Libya. In just a few months, the whole country was in turmoil, with open warfare between the "rebels" and the "pro-Gaddafists". During the nine months of war, a rather extraordinary group fought alongside the rebels: the "Deaf Brigade". One year after the beginning of the Libyan Revolution, Daniel Abbou – host of the French weekly programme for the deaf "L'Oeil et la main" (Eyes and Hands) - visited the town of Misrata to meet these deaf soldiers who have taken an active part in the historic changes that have redefined their country.
