A special charity-hosted screening of the war film Kajaki is to take place in Edinburgh this Sunday.

The true story of a group of soldiers from 3 Para, led by Corporal Mark Wright GC from Dalkeith, who were caught in a minefield in Afghanistan in 2006, will be told through the lens of director and BAFTA nominee Paul Katis at the Omni Centre VUE cinema.

Bob and Jem, parents of Mark Wright, said: “We are very pleased to hear Kajaki is back in Vue cinemas this weekend for screenings in support of Help for Heroes. We urge everyone to go and see it this Sunday and give generously for a great cause. We are extremely proud that the film has been nominated for a BAFTA.”

Bryn Parry, CEO and Co-Founder of Help for Heroes, added: “We are very grateful to the Kajaki team and Vue Cinemas for offering Help for Heroes these special charity screenings. Kajaki has helped people understand what our Armed Forces went through in Afghanistan and the film has been incredibly well-received. We congratulate the Kajaki team on their BAFTA nomination.”

Gareth Ellis-Unwin, Executive Producer of Kajaki, commented “It’s a cause I and the whole team are passionate about and we are delighted to continue to support Help for Heroes by bringing this important and timely film back into Vue. Having supported us wholeheartedly from the very beginning, it feels like the film is coming home. It is another chance for members of the British public to honour those brave men and woman that are currently or have served, by coming out to see the film.”
