Not to be confused with Peter Weir's feature film, this recent documentary was produced over six years.

Drawing on the diaries, letters and documents of soldiers from all sides of the conflict, the film explores the famous battle through the perspectives of soldiers from Britain, New Zealand, Australia and Turkey.

Narrated by Jeremy Irons and Sam Neill, Örnek's film skillfully and gradually breaks through the soldiers' dutiful exteriors to show exactly how the war felt from a human standpoint.
