Building on the exciting announcement earlier this month of Freedom Fields‘ forthcoming World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, we are happy to say that the good news does not end there… the film will have its UK Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival!
Filmed over 5 years, Freedom Fields is a new documentary from Libyan/British director Naziha Arebi, produced by Flore Cosquer of SDI Productions.
It 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. A love letter to sisterhood and the power of team.
