Freedom Fields

Director: Naziha Arebi
Duration: 97 min

Filmed over five years, FREEDOM FIELDS follows three women and their football team in post-revolution Libya, as the country descends into civil war and the utopian hopes of the Arab Spring begin to fade. Through the eyes of these accidental activists, we see the reality of a country in transition, where aspirations and personal stories of love collide with history. An intimate film about hope, struggle and sacrifice in a land where dreams seem a luxury, and a love letter to sisterhood.
