Freedom Fields (PG)
2018 97m Dir: Naziha Arebi
In Arabic with English subtitles

Emboldened by the Arab Spring, the Libyan women’s soccer team is dreaming of playing their first international game. However, their sport faces huge opposition in Libya. With broad and intimate access, three players coming from different social and political backgrounds are followed on and off the field. Over the course of several years we witness their attempts at getting support to be able to play and, as the country descends into civil war, their fight to reinvent their lives daily when uncertainty has become a routine. With conservative forces in society getting in the way, even in more moderate circles, the women must constantly fight for room to maneuver, both in public and private life.

Screening times:
Tuesday 2 July – 6pm
Wednesday 3 July – 8:45pm
Thursday 4 July – 8:40pm

Tickets: £9.50 (standard), £7.00 (concessions), £3.50 (16 -25 year olds)
