“We decided the film was to be shot on Bali or we had no movie”, that according to the film’s director Marc Esposito.

Shooting 60 locations in eight weeks, BFC was able to gain access to everything the production needed, on governmental and local levels. “They made life very simple for us,” he says. Shooting such varied landscapes – the sea, volcanoes, mountains, traditional villages, temples, rice fields, forests and beautiful multi-colored beaches – 60 locations in just eight weeks and all located on just one island of 2,169 square miles.
