Still from Gallipoli: The Dawn Service of Sir William Deane, Governor General of Australia

At dawn on 25 April 1999, 5,000 young Australian backpackers gathered with the Governor General of Australia, Sir William Deane, to commemorate ANZAC Day at Gallipoli.

The occasion was not unlike the many that had gone before and since, except for that one poignant detail. Conducted every year at Gallipoli, the official ceremony was held at Ari Buru, just a few hundred metres from where the first landings took place, until 1999.

There was huge emotion on this national day, with Sir William Deane later remarking that “this was wonderful.” Given exclusive access to the ceremony Film Art Media presents a unique insight into this moving and historic occasion.
