25 April is an innovative feature documentary-drama 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, it brings First World War experiences out of the usual black-and-white archive pictures and into vibrant, dynamic colour. 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.

Censor Rating: M - Review Rating: B-
