In 1981 the South African rugby team toured New Zealand. Those opposed to the tour mounted massive demonstrations. Demonstrations that were to have a huge impact on the watching South African populace.
Sensitive and moving documentary film based on 6 individuals who served in the New Zealand Expeditionary force at Gallipoli. Striking animations crafted with richly researched documentary screenplay. First feature length film on the subject from New Zealand directors and Leanne Pooley. The characters are well developed and the connections between scenes are very well down especially with the animated transitions and metaphors. The film hasn't had wide release here in Australia but i was lucky enough to see it on the big screen at The National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra. If you have the chance i would recommend you see this film, well worth a look.
