Love knows no bounds in 'Batanes'

Ignite Media and GMA Films' "Batanes" is a heartwarming study of a relationship between two cultures. Directors Adolfo Alix, Jr. ("Donsol," "Kadin," "Tambolista") and Dave Hukom describe the film as a poignant love story about two people who may or may not end up together. "Though they are from different cultures, they'll prove that love is very universal. Emotions know no boundaries," they say. Hence the movie's tagline: "Love knows no borders."

With its vast landscapes, rough seas and ever-changing weather, Batanes is the perfect backdrop for this groundbreaking movie. Batanes, itself a character in the story, may represent the sweeping, bittersweet emotions the characters feel when they fall for each other.

Taiwanese superstar Ken Chu ("Meteor Garden," "Tokyo Trial") stars in his first Filipino film with Iza Calzado ("Moments of Love," "The Echo") in this romance drama.

The film's ensemble includes newcomer Joem Bascon, Sid Lucero, Coco Martin, Mike Tan and Glaiza de Castro plus acting heavyweights Bembol Roco, Daria Ramirez and Julio Diaz.

On board are line producer Arleen Cuevas, cinematographer Ramoncito Redoble, editor Miren Alvarez-Fabregas, sound recordist Mark Locsin, sound engineer Ditoy Aguila, production designer Cyrus Khan and music composer Jesse Lucas.

The movie opens on December 5, 2007 in theaters nationwide.
