Judy Ann Santos Stars in ‘Ploning’

juday_closeup.jpgIn celebration of Judy Ann Santos' 30th birthday, she will star in the ground-breaking film "Ploning" which is set to premiere on April 30, 2008. Ploning is the first movie produced by Panoramanila, a new film outfit composed of young Filipino filmmakers coming from both independent and commercial cinema industries.

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.

Watch the teaser trailer of Ploning.
