Panoramanila fuses independent cinema spirit with commercial filmmaking sensibilities. Their first feature film, Ploning, is shot with live sound and in the traditional 35 mm. film format, so basically, this is not a digital movie.
The Judy Ann starrer was shot entirely in Cuyo Island, Palawan, showcasing its breath-taking sceneries.
The main inspiration of the film is from the popular Cuyonon folk song, “Ploning”. It presents the story of a Cuyonon woman’s promise, her struggle with hope and love told from the point of view of a young boy.
