A film about the dramatic life of Norwich City player Kei Kamara is set for its first Norwich screenings.
Cinema City has agreed with US-based production company Copper Pot Pictures for the documentary, Kei, to be screened twice on Friday, March 15.
The screenings of the 25-minute film, at 8.20pm and 9.30pm, will also be raising money for a charity which the Canaries striker supports, Schools for Salone.
That is because 28-year-old Kamara was raised in war-torn west African country Sierra Leone, before fleeing to the United States aged 15.
Kamara became one of the stars of Major League Soccer in the US, earning him a loan move to Norwich in January.
The tall striker’s enthusiastic personality has already struck a chord with the Canaries faithful - not to mention a game-changing performance against Everton at the end of last month.
Kamara scored a towering header to bring City level at Carrow Road and inspired the Canaries to a 2-1 win.
Now City fans will be able to learn more about Kamara, with tickets costing £5, or £4 for Cinema City members, going on sale soon.
Schools for Salone, which is working to build a new school, will receive 65pc of the ticket proceeds.
The screenings of the film, which has a 15 age certificate, will be followed by a question and answer session with the film’s directors Dave LaMattina and Chad Walker, and producer Clay Frost, who will be flying in from the US.
