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.

Beautifully shot and paced, director Nazhia Arebi succeeds at telling an intimate, nuanced story while showcasing Libyan street life in the complicated post-Gaddafi era.
