Taking Liberties - a reminder

Taking Liberties

Ace film Taking Liberties opens next Friday. If lots of people go and see it on the opening weekend, it will get wider distribution across the UK. This would be a Good Thing, because the more people know about what is slowly happening to erode our birthright of freedom, the better. I have already written about it here, and I urge you to go and see it if you can. It's excellent. Here are the cinema listings.

UPDATE: Woot! Check it... BBC , Shadows on the Wall, ('unambiguous and urgent-and unmissable.' ), Londonist ('a depressing picture but is pretty darn good fun to watch; something of a paradox'), and do visit the Director's rather good blog

There is a bit of a blogger outing to see it on Saturday 9th at Brixton Ritzy's, followed by pintage, and possibly curry, so you can come to that if you want, ( email me, rachelnorthlondon AT gmail DOT com) - sadly, stalkertastic latest means I can't advertise movements, etc) or check the website for listings, which are being added all the time. Or you can beat the crowds and see it early...

Rather conveniently, I think Mrs. and son are off out of London next weekend, so where's this blogger's meet up, then?

Drop me an email, chuck. I had better not advertise my movements for obvious reasons...

In this month's Amnesty International magazine there's an interview with director Chris Atkins and a small picture of our estimable host.

I caught this last night at Greenwich. Sadly the post-showing Q&A was cancelled (badly - one A4 sheet stuck up where no-one could see, no announcement in the theatre).

It's a well made piece, which gets it's point across well, but it desperately needs more exposure; otherwise the only people who go watch it will be people like me who already know and understand what's going on. That said, I do feel more inspired to actually do something about it over and above vapid blog commentary ;)
