ANZAC DAY – 25 April 2016

WHEN

25 April 2016

WHAT

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It’s one of Australia’s most important occasions to remember the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their country during the First World War.

WHERE

In all the cities of Australia and New Zealand, including the Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa and Tonga. It will be held memorial services in towns and cities throughout the country with parades, marches military and former military. The biggest events are held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne.

WHY

The festivity of April 25 was chosen to commemorate the first landing of the ANZAC troops, also called “Diggers”, nickname given because often, the British, gave them the task of digging trenches in Gallipoli, Turkey. They were made a lot of errors of strategic tactics by the British command, resulting in a massacre of more than 250,000 guys of ANZAC troops. For this way I’ve create a video inspired by movie and documentaries, for remember this tragic event.
