The Society for Libyan Studies is delighted to invite you to a screening of the film FREEDOM FIELDS which will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s BAFTA nominated, Libyan-British director, Naziha Arebi.

The event is being held in conjunction with the Ahbab Festival and is supported by the Society.

Admission is free but booking is required: Please follow this link to make a booking.

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.
