Premiere for local producer

A former Banchory Academy pupil’s film will have its UK premiere later this month at the London Independent Film Festival 2012.

Wounded, which scooped the top prize at the Marbella International Film Festival 2011, will be screened at Shortwave on Friday April 20 and is the fourth feature from London-based production company Bigview Media.

The film was produced by Banchory-born Elizabeth Brown and Richard J. Danum and written and directed by Tom Large and Joseph Baker.

Wounded is a chase drama following the story of John Woods, an injured soldier back from Afghanistan who goes on the run with a troubled young boy from an abusive family and is forced to confront his past as he is pursued by the police and the child’s psychotic drug-dealing father.

The cast includes some of Britain’s most promising rising stars with some familiar faces like Les Dennis, whose performance was hailed at MIFF 2011.
