TRAILER: “25 April” – Opens This Week In LA

Opening in Los Angeles this Friday (October 21st – for Oscar consideration) at the Laemmle Town Center 5 in Encino, is 25 April – an animated documentary based on the tragic 1915 Gallipoli Campaign of WW1 – told through the perspective of six New Zealanders who were involved. Here’s the trailer:

New Zealand documentary filmmaker Leanne Pooley directed, and renowned comic-book artist Colin Wilson (Judge Dredd) was a design consultant – his influence is evident in the graphic-novel-style visuals. The film combines digital 2D with 3D modelling, CGI, motion capture, and hand-drawn backgrounds — all of which is in support of the eyewitness accounts of the war, whose authors describe the brutal circumstances and challenges they faced.
