Summary, etc.:
Qaddafi's Female Bodyguards takes fascinating look inside one of the Mid-East's most unusual military units, Libya's elite female military corps who were assigned to guard the country's supreme leader, Mohmmar Qaddafi. The film examines how these women embody the tension between Islam and modernization in a nomadic society, between feminism and an old-style dictatorship.
