Synopsis

"We've lived many beginnings," says Fadwa, the young protagonist in Naziha Arebi's debut documentary, Freedom Fields. Fadwa is remarking on the state of post-revolution Libya in the aftermath of the violent overthrow of Col. Moammar Gadhafi and the reformative protests of the Arab Spring. However, as we are soon to find out, her comment also speaks to another dream close to her heart: to play soccer for her country on the international stage.
