Plot & Details

Produced over the course of six years, drawing on over seventy archives in Europe and beyond, and researched with over sixteen international historians to ensure the it was as accurate as possible, this documentary from director Tolga Örnek draws on the diaries, letters, and documents of average soldiers in order to emphasize the historical importance of Gallipoli. By using materials from soldiers on all sides of the conflict, Örnek's film approaches the subject from an objective vantage point; never sacrificing historical fact for dramatic impact. In exploring the conflict through the perspectives of two British, three New Zealand, three Australian, and two Turkish soldiers, the filmmakers gradually break through the soldiers' dutiful exteriors to show exactly how they felt it from a human standpoint.
