Moviehouse Entertainment is taking on sales for documentary Taking Liberties, with all UK rights going to Revolver Entertainment.

Chris Atkins, a longtime producer for Richard Jobson, wrote and directed the project for S2S Productions. Nicky Moss produced and also negotiated the Revolver deal.

The film is described as 'a hilarious but shocking polemic that attacks the Blair Government's destruction of every one of the basic liberties.'

Kurt Engfehr, who edited and co-produced Bowling For Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, served as co-producer on Taking Liberties.

Engfehr said in a statement: 'I'm glad that there are filmmakers like Chris Atkins and his team making films that shed light on the state of civil liberties in Britain today.'

The film includes Simon Robson's animations and Ashley Jensen's narration. Some proceeds from the soundtrack, with tracks from Oasis, Radiohead and Franz Ferdinand, will benefit Amnesty International.

Revolver head Justin Marciano said: 'Entertaining and educating, Taking Liberties is a vitally important work that throws light on a subject that everyone in this country should be aware of but few sadly are. Set for release at exactly the right time, we're proud to have been part of it and believe it can be a catalyst for change.'

Revolver plans a June 8 nationwide UK release. Moviehouse will be screening a promo at Cannes.
