Ahmed’s story

Ahmed was only 2 years old when his parents had to flee the Libyan regime of Muammar Gaddafi.  Raised and educated in Montreal, Canada, Ahmed always thought of himself as being Canadian first.  That changed shortly after the February 17th 2011 uprising in Benghazi.   Ahmed then decided to leave the comfort of his Montreal apartment to travel to Libya and joined his Libyan brothers on the front lines as a freedom fighter.  Ahmed is a dear friend of Mountain Peak Films as he was first met by @mpeakfilms freelanced filmmakers back in Libya in 2011. This is a sneak peek of Ahemd’s interview that will be featured in Mountain Peak Films upcoming documentary titled My Jihad, Mystory.  #myjihadmystory is still in production and we are looking for individuals who, like Ahmed, want to share their story.  Contact us
