Abstract

Filmed over five years, the documentary 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 and aspirations collide with history. Following this female football team was a unique opportunity to look at the Libian civil war through the eyes of women. The team consisted of women from different background with different aspirations to give us a rounded idea of how women’s basic rights to sport and physical activity can be turned into civil resistance. This film is the only documentary made about Libya between 2011 & 2019 which looks at its recent history through a female perspective. It is also the first documentary directed by a Libyan woman.
