The trailer for this feature film.
An excerpt from this feature film.
Making-of footage from this feature film.
Animation gives us the opportunity to bring the men and women who were at Gallipoli back to life. It allows us to really experience what they went through from an entirely new perspective. There are no limitations to how the story can be illustrated.– Director Leanne Pooley in a May 2014 press release for 25 April
[Director Leanne Pooley] has crafted a particularly visionary work with her experimental, animated film ... Pooley's style works as a narrative film despite being a documentary, having a momentum to it that injects the arcs and themes that typically distinguish the two methods of filmmaking. What this ultimately does is give an identifiable face to what is now mostly understood as a pointless exercise in human carnage and suffering.– Robert Bell reviews 25 April for Canadian website Exclaim, 28 September 2015
There was a year of research before we started to animate anything. That involved reading hundreds and hundreds of diaries. ... we read diaries, letters, and memoirs, and we were looking for certain things – we were looking for individuals who could articulate more than just the facts ... I looked for individuals who not only talked about what was happening, but also talked about how they felt about what was happening and how that impacted them as individuals.– Writer/director Leanne Pooley, in an interview with website Speakeasy, 25 April 2016
