>Where it all started

>

When we tell the story of how John came to write AMIGO, we start by talking about the trip John and I made with Joel Torre through Pampanga and up the Zambales coast. John wanted an up-close look at some of the landscape that figures in the Fil-Am War sections of his novel A MOMENT IN THE SUN, and Joel kindly offered to be our guide. Joel talked to us about the local film business where ambitious movies could be made by professional crews, for a reasonable budget by our standards, and that led us to think we might be able to make a movie in the Philippines. Jimmy was our driver and here he is with us and our host in Baguio. Thanks, Jimmy.
