Director of The Orphanage Juan Antonio Bayona’s latest film The Impossible brings us a new incarnation of horror; though this time based on the true events of a family separated during the 2004 Tsunami and their quest to re-unite. At the Charity Premiere in aid of the Indian Ocean Disaster Relief (IODR) Premiere Scene’s Claire Bueno and Mike Jonas interview Bayona who shares with us why he refused to use CGI to re-create the natural disaster. Stars of the film Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Tom Holland and Samuel Joslin explain how shooting the film in Thailand helped give them a clearer perspective in defining their roles and Maria Belon the survivor with whom this story is based, reveals why this story should be told.
