Freedom Fields - ملاعب الحرية
Naziha Arebi
Libye | 2017

 

 

 

descriptif

Dans la Lybye post-révolution, une groupe de femmes sont réunies par un rêve : jouer au football pour leur pays. Mais comme leur nation sombre dans la guerre civile, leurs histoires personnelles faites d'aspiration, d'amour et de lutte se heurtent à l'histoire.

Un film de Naziha Arebi

Libye / GB, 2017, Documentaire, 1h30', couleur, langue arabe sous-titrée

Réalisatrice : Naziha Arebi
Scénariste : Naziha Arebi

SDI (GB)

In post-revolution Libya a group of women are brought together by one dream: to play football for their nation. But as the country descends into civil war, their personal stories of aspiration, love and struggle collide with History.

FREEDOM FIELDS is the story of three accidental activists and their team. Existing for years before the revolution, without ever playing a single match, we find the women of the team post revolution, hopeful that things will be different. But up against the wrath of society and extremist groups their dreams are thwarted as they are banned from travelling to Germany for what would have been their first ever tournament.
Disillusioned, they go shopping for wedding dresses they will never wear, watch football that they feel they will never play. Secret discussions of love, weaved with talk of war, spark around kitchen tables. Moments of desperation mixed with dark humour, as the country sinks into civil war and starts to feel more and more like a prison they will never be able to leave. But, after many months and against all odds, the women manage to travel to Beirut for an international tournament.
Their hopes reinvigorated, they start making plans for the future. Not
only for their national team, but bigger: how can they change their
society, on and off the pitch?

Director's Statement
In 2011, the Arab Spring was capturing the world's hearts. Wanting to discover what being'Libyan' meant I travelled to Libya with my father at the fall of Tripoli. It was here that I found my team, a group of women who defied society's restrictions, full of fire and hope for a new future. Four years later I found myself still living in Tripoli, living our shared reality in a cloud of disillusionment. As chaos ensued and many people were leaving, heading into exile once again due to ongoing fighting, I questioned how far we can go before realising a dream is over, but I also discovered the power we find in such moments to start to create new dreams. That is what is at the core of this film. Making this film, for me, is not about football; it is about individuals fighting against a system to attain their dreams. Football is a vehicle that gives access to their everyday lives in an open and visceral way. A trigger for their wit, fire and humour. A tool that allows them to explore the concept of the individual, to mark out their identity and their collective struggle as women and changemakers. As the only Libyan female filmmaker on the ground in Libya I have been embedded with the team for over five years now. We have developed a relationship which delivers an intense rawness and a closeness, which has not been seen out of Libya before.
