Freedom Fields (original title)
A film by Naziha Arebi
In post-revolution Libya, a group of women are brought together by one dream: playing football for their nation. As the country descends into civil war and the utopian hopes of the “Arab Spring” begin to fade, can they realize their dream? And is there even a country left to play for?
Freedom Fields is a film about hope and sacrifice in a land where dreams seem a luxury. Through the eyes of these accidental activists we see the reality of a country in transition, where the personal stories of love, struggle and aspirations collide with History.
