Kajaki, director Paul Katis’ debut feature, had its premiere last night in London’s Leicester Square and it proved to be a fine night while the good word of mouth for the film continues to grow.
Katis and screenwriter Tom Williams have taken the incredible story of a platoon from the 3rd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment held down in Kajaki, Helmand and translated it to the big screen with panace, respect and style.
Colin Hart was on hand last night to speak with the cast and the crew of this modern British war movie – which is certainly one to watch. The film is out on the 28th of November, our review will be up shortly.
Here’s how Mr. Hart got on last night.

Synopsis, you say? You got it…
Kajaki Dam 2006. A company of young British soldiers encounter an unexpected, terrifying enemy. A dried-out river bed, and under every step the possibility of an anti-personnel mine. A mine that could cost you your leg – or your life.
