Still of Sam Naz portraying Noor Inayat Khan


Liberté is a short film that tells the incredible story of Noor Inayat Khan and her bravery during World War II. Written and co-produced by Sky News anchor, broadcaster and journalist, Sam Naz, the drama is inspired by the true story of the British secret agent Noor Inayat Khan’s time held captive by the Nazi regime and is based on testimony given by the same German captors after the war. The film dramatizes the harrowing story of one of the unlikeliest of spies - a Muslim woman - who never cracked under Nazi brutality. The film also stars Oliver Boot (The Time of Your Life, Distant Shores) as the Nazi intelligence chief Hans Josef Kieffer, and is directed and co-produced by Christopher Hanvey (Justice, Loyalty).
