The Bloody Sands of Libya

Krvave písky Libye

Directing: Ladislav Kaboš


Slovak nurse Luba El Malaheg came to Libya 20 years ago. She fell in love and married a Libyan surgeon and converted to Islam. When he suddenly died two years ago, she decided to stay. The armed conflict changed the life of the Misurata hospital head nurse. She couldn’t leave the injured and dying. She sends her son and daughter back to Slovakia and then lives through hell on earth. After two months she decides to escape on a fishing boat and manages to organize transport for a seriously wounded British war photographer. Her son-in-law Nasri transports him under heavy fire to the Misurata port. Nasri and Donka decide to return to Misurata where there is no food, no medicaments, water or electricity. Luba follows them as well. In the middle of the conflict she faces horrors of the war, as well as her own conscience and dramas in her own family.
