Storyline

Neurotic, paranoid British Muslim Woody Ali sits on a plane anticipating the trip of a life time - a holiday in the land of the free, the home of the brave, the US of A. But thanks to a freak accident, Woody finds himself vacationing in America's notorious 'Camp Liberty' detention facility. The camp is run by intelligence officer, Major Jeffcock Winchester - a man on the verge of a nervous breakdown and a man who vows to break all evil doers. With only the company of his cell mate, an angry convert by the name of Jeffrey Mohammed, Woody starts to question his own sanity and whether he is in fact guilty of some crime. Is he being targeted for being a suspected terrorist; or for just being different? Written by Dishad Husain

Dark comedy gem
2 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The best comedy often comes from uncomfortable situations, and VIVA LIBERTY makes you laugh as you question the ease at which miscarriages of justice can occur. Focussing on an English Muslim, Woody Ali, as he travels to the US, the film shows how a simple misunderstanding can send an innocent man spiralling into a nightmare of imprisonment, interrogation and...er Jerry Springer. Of the performances, the lead actor (who plays Woody Ali) deserves mention as he brings a vulnerability, coupled with solid comic timing to a difficult role. With confident writing and pacey direction, a situation that most would see as befitting only a serious, probing drama is played as an effective dark, dark comedy.
