GALA SCREENING OF FREEDOM FIELDS WITH LIVE Q&A
We hosted two screenings of Freedom Fields, including a live Q&A with Naziha Arebi, Director and Producer.
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.
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.
All ticket proceeds went to HERA, a young Libyan NGO founded by those featuring within the film, using sport as a tool for reconciliation, trauma relief, healing and empowerment.
