On Friday, May 25, the Cannes Film Festival will present a special screening of one of their Official Selection films, Bernard-Henri Lévy’s "Le Serment de Tobrouk" or "The Oath of Tobruk."  French philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy created the film during the eight-month conflict in Libya that put an end to the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi. The film traces the unfolding of the war and a spontaneous popular revolt turned revolution due to the determination of protesters in Libya and internationally.

At the invitation of Bernard-Henry Lévy, and welcomed by the Cannes Festival, four key figures of the Libyan revolution will attend the screening to dedicate their achievement in Libya to their Syrian friends.
