I have tears in my eyes as I leave the Gallipoli display. A deeply and profoundly moving experience. Thank you to all involved in this installation. I am lost for words.
The phenomenal oversize models really brought the whole thing to life. As I veteran I had real empathy and felt the hairs on the back of my neck raise on a number of occasions.
It is the best exhibition I have been to and I can’t thank you enough. It is exactly what a war exhibit should be. Insightful, moving, informative, emotive. I came away with tears in my eyes. It was hauntingly beautiful.
In partnership with Te Papa museum, Wētā Workshop developed a five-part mini-documentary series focused on the development of this experience. This series formed part of the launch campaign for the experience and has been watched by millions over multiple platforms.
