MMFF hopeful film 'Culion' heads to the former leper colony island in the Philippines.
Despite the harsh weather last week, official shooting for the film Culion started when the film's cast and crew flew to the island, which was less than two hours away from Coron.
Leading the cast was actress-producer Iza Calzado, Jasmin Curtis, Meryll Soriano, Joem Bascon and Lee O'Brian.
The lead actresses all portray residents in the island who were afflicted with the disease. Joem plays Iza's love interest.
The film hopes to be included in this year's Metro Manila film festival lineup.
