September is Maritime Month and the movie Marino [Call of the Sea] is going to be screened in maritime schools all over the country. The movie, produced by Allen Dizon [in photo], had an advance screening in SM Pampanga. Too, special screenings for members of seafarer organizations are scheduled within the month. Marino is about “the lives and sacrifices of seamen and their families, and pertinent issues like sea pirates, sunken ships, sexually-transmitted diseases and foreign employment.” Sounds like an epic, but you have to see the hunky stars in the flick – Dizon, Emilio Garcia, Rico Barrera, Marco Alcaraz, Mike Tan and Victor Basa. How’s that for a seamen movie?
