Asia's Titanic on National Geographic Channel

By 1:15 AM

Yam Laranas (director of Sigaw and The Echo) took three years to make 'Asia's Titanic', a 100% Filipino-made documentary about the MV Doña Paz tragedy to be aired on National Geographic Channel at 8pm tonight (August 25, 2009).

The documentary is produced by Andrew Roque.

Synopsis of the documentary:

December 20, 1987, just five days before Christmas, passenger ship MV Doña Paz collided with an oil tanker, MT Vector, off Mindoro Island in the Philippines. It is said that almost 5,000 passengers died in the tragedy and called the world’s worst peacetime maritime disaster.

Through dramatic first hand accounts from survivors and rescuers, transcripts from the Philippine congressional inquiry into the tragedy, archival footage and photos and a re-enactment of the collision, “Asia’s Titanic” would dissect how the Doña Paz tragedy unfolded.

Here's the screening schedule of Asia's Titanic.
