FILM: Freedom Fields (2018)
June 3, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm
Dir: Naziha Arebi
TBC, UK / Libya, Documentary,
This engrossing Scottish Documentary Institute release has played
well to audiences across the globe, so we are really pleased to be
bringing it to the Grassmarket community. Filmed over five years,
Arebi and her team follow three young female football players, playing for their team in post-revolution Libya, just at the point when the
hope of the Arab Spring descends into the chaos and violence of civil
war. Freedom Fields is a wonderfully intimate portrait of sacrifice and
sisterhood on and off the football field.
