🇱🇾 The Death of Gaddafi | The Big Picture

October 20th 2011, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi is dragged from a drain pipe, tortured and killed.

Libya’s self-proclaimed ‘Brother Leader, the one-time revolutionary who overthrew a king and promised a country governed by the people, met his end at the hands of a new generation of revolutionaries, Libyans seeking an end to Gaddafi’s often brutal 42-year rule.

But as the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ uprisings deposed leaders to the east and west of Libya in Egypt and Tunisia, was the fall of Gaddafi inevitable? Was it always destined to be so bloody? And was it simply the unleashed rage of a beleaguered population or were external factors – and external powers – involved in the violence that ripped Libya apart?

This short film uncovers the moments that led up to the protests in the east of Libya and how they turned into a full-scale rebellion. It charts the Gaddafi regime’s response as well as its ultimate demise, and, explores the role of international actors in the break-up of Libya and the death of Gaddafi.
