In The Home 25 April

Key art for 25 April

25 April' is an innovative feature documentary created to bring the story of the New Zealand experience at Gallipoli (Turkey) to life for a modern audience through a re-imagined world. Using graphic novel-like animation, '25 April' brings First World War experiences out of the usual black-and-white archive pictures and into vibrant, dynamic color. Weaving together animated "interviews" based on the diaries, letters and memoirs of six people who were actually there, the film tells the compelling and heart-wrenching tale of war, friendship, loss and redemption using the words of those who experienced it.
