Special screening of Kajaki raises cash for charity
10th June 2015

There was a special charity screening of the war film Kajaki at the Imperial War Museum to both raise money for Help for Heroes, The Hashemite Commission for Disabled Soldiers, Walking with the Wounded and The Royal British Legion and to mark its digital release.

The film tells the true story of when a unit from the Parachute Regiment stationed in Afghanistan found themselves in a Soviet minefield, unmarked and untouched since their Soviet withdrawal in 1989. 

We spoke to cast and crew members, and veterans from the incident which is told in this story.
