The Festival of Football in association with Arts Canteen are incredibly proud to host a gala screening of the critically acclaimed documentary feature film FREEDOM FIELDS followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Naziha Arebi.
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 the personal stories of love and aspirations collide with History.Freedom Fields is a 2018 documentary film by Libyan filmmaker Naziha Arebi.
An intimate film about hope, struggle and sacrifice in a land where dreams seem a luxury. A love letter to sisterhood and the power of team.
