Synopsis:
Taking Liberties is the surprise box office hit from Chris Atkins – the thought provoking and entertaining new director who has been compared to Michael Moor with his characteristically deft humour and no-holds-barred style. Taking Liberties launches an unflinching inquiry into how New Labour has systematically eroded our basic liberties, and the freedoms of the British people, amidst a climate of fear created by the media and the government.
Shocking, determinedly truthful and scathingly funny, Taking Liberties combines real stories of liberty loss with cheeky stunts and comment from Mark Thomas, Boris Johnson and Tony Benn as well as other leading politicians, celebrities, human rights organisations, academics and more. The result is a revealing and entertaining look at the burning issues of the UK today.
