The Picturehouse Bradford at National Media & Science Museum welcome director Naziha Arebi for a live Q&A following the screening of Freedom Fields.
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. A love letter to sisterhood and the power of the team.
Naziha Arebi is a Libyan/British artist and filmmaker who returned to Libya during the revolution to work and explore her father’s homeland. Naziha works at the intersection of art and activism and is co-founder of film collective HuNa. Alongside her first feature Freedom Fields she is currently producing the documentary feature After A Revolution.
