When filmmaker Matthew Millan was recruited by his friend, a Libyan refugee living for decades in LA, to go with him to Benghazi and document the revolution, he was terrified. Once there, what Milan found amidst the bloody revolution to overthrow a 40-year-old dictatorship, was a high octane, defiant music scene and a unified human spirit that was as electrifying as it was inspiring. Hip-hop, heavy metal, rock, and blues take center stage in “Stronger Than Bullets”, as the musicians become the leading voices and heroes of the revolution, some paying the ultimate price, dying for what they passionately believe in. Guitars and rifles stand side by side during the fighting, the victory and the chaos that follows. And while the musicians, after gaining a brief period of freedom of expression, are forced once again to practice in secret, they continue to believe that “strings are stronger than bullets.”88 min, 2016.
