Dante Lam‘s (林超賢) film To the Fore <破風> was filmed at numerous locations around the world. An inspirational film about a team of young cyclists, the cast trotted the globe in the last two years, visiting hotspots such as the Alps in Italy and the Tengger Desert in China.
The movie stars an Pan-Asian cast, featuring Eddie Peng (彭于晏) from Taiwan, Shawn Dou (竇驍) and Wang Luodan (王珞丹) from China, Choi Siwon (崔始源) from South Korea, and Carlos Chan (陳家樂) from Hong Kong. Produced by Hong Kong’s Emperor Motion Pictures, the film visits world-famous locations such as the Busan’s SPO1 PARK, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Kaohsiung.
Eddie said one of his most memorable filming locations was in the Tengger Desert, located in Inner Mongolia, where he cycled for hours amidst the cold desert climate in the winter. “It was very fun,” said Eddie. “The desert scenery is breathtaking. I’m so lucky to be able to play a cyclist who gets to have the opportunity to cycle in the desert. All the hard work is worth it! I have no regrets!”
Shawn Dou shared that he witnessed two beautiful rainbows while filming in the Alps.
Over $100 million HKD was invested for the film’s overseas shooting locations. In Kaohsiung, the production team filmed a large-scale cycling race which covered 13 kilometers. Using over 20 cameras, Kaohsiung’s magnificent scenery was also captured through helicopter work.
To the Fore will be released in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong on August 7, 2015.
