Freedom Fields

 

Synopsis

Filmed over five years, FREEDOM FIELDS follows three women and their football team in post-revolution Libya as utopian hopes of the Arab Spring begin to fade and the country descends into civil war. 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. 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.
