“That Thing Called Tadhana” Holds Outdoor Screening in Boracay


“That Thing Called Tadhana” is destined to go places.

Aside from a slated US release on March 27 (Friday), the Cinema One Originals film is set to be screened outdoors at Boracay for Cinema One’s “Club C1 Movies by the Beach” on March 28 (Saturday) with Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman in attendance.

“Club C1 Movies by the Beach” will also feature performances from KZ Tandingan and DJ Tom Taus with hosts Robi Domingo, Gretchen Ho, and DJ Cha Cha at White House & Sur Boracay, 7PM. Early birds at the free admission Cinema One event will be given free mats from Lagu.

The Antoinette Jadaone-helmed romantic comedy film has recently been named as the highest grossing local indie film of all time, amassing a staggering 134 million pesos according to official reports – a breakthrough in Philippine cinema which is heavily dominated by films produced by major film outfits.

Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman, the lead stars of “Tadhana” also received nods of approval for their portrayal of Mace and Anthony as both have bagged best actress and actor awards. Director Antoinette Jadaone’s film paved the way for Panganiban to win Best Actress award at the 2014 Cinema One Originals Film Festival, while de Guzman was named Best Actor at the Gawad Pasado. Jadaone’s phenomenal hit was also the Cinema One Originals Film Festival’s Audience Choice.

“Tadhana” is inspired by Richard Linklater’s 1995 classic, “Before Sunrise.” The Cinema One Originals film follows the story of two Filipino strangers, Mace (Angelica Panganiban) and Anthony (JM de Guzman) who met at Rome’s airport. At the check-in counter, a struggling Mace who made countless attempts to pass the baggage load requirements was saved with the help of Anthony. After landing in Manila, the two eventually decide to travel together up north to Baguio and Sagada in the quest to search for the answer to the question, “where do broken hearts go?”
