Screening and Q&A with Giles Duley

Channel 4 film Walking Wounded: Return to the Frontline about award-winning photographer, Giles Duley, screens on Saturday 15th March.

Walking Wounded, Return to the Frontline.jpgMulti-award winning photographer Giles Duley relocated from London to Hastings over a decade ago having spent his early career flying from one exotic location to the next as a fashion photographer. Having learned his craft he swiftly made the transition to hard-hitting reportage embarking on secretive road trips to some of the most afflicted war zones in the world.

In February 2011, Giles was catastrophically injured whilst working in Afghanistan which resulted in the loss of both legs and his left arm.

Truly it was never a question of IF, it was WHEN Giles would walk again, including his return to his first love: photography. Indeed, his first words upon realising the extent of his injuries were, “I’m still a photographer”. Not only is Giles now walking, and YES, still talking, he now lives independently with minimal assistance. He has returned to his work as promised and recently realized his ambition to return to Afghanistan. 

This is a fabulous opportunity to see the multi award-winning Channel 4 film ‘Walking Wounded: Return to the Frontline’ documenting Giles’ first major photographic assignment after sustaining his life-changing injuries and to talk to the man himself (his team Yeovil might come up...). Giles will introduce the film and be available afterwards for a Q&A session. Book now.

Half of ticket sales will go towards the Mine Advisory Group.
