Respect was a word that came up often as I was talking with the filmmakers who brought THE IMPOSSIBLE to the screenon October 31 2012. Based on the true story of one family's harrowing experience trying to survive in the aftermath of the Christmas Day tsunami in Thailand, the film was shot on location where it actually happened. Many of the extras were people who had personally experienced the disaster, and co-produer Belen Atienza, screenwriter Sergio Sanchez, and director Juan Antonio Bayona were determined to do justice to them as well as to the family portrayed by Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, and Tom Holland. We also covered why this particular story was so compelling for them, why CGI wouldn't do when it came to recreating the floodwaters, and the unexpected correspondences between this film and their previous one, the supernatural thriller, THE ORPHANAGE.
