The story of an undocumented Filipina in the United States who dreams of becoming a successful musician will move Philippine audiences with the premiere of the Filipino-American musical drama flick “Yellow Rose,” on SKY Movies Pay-Per-View on January 29 (Friday).
Featuring an ensemble of renowned Pinoy talents such as Grammy Award-winner and Tony Awards nominee Eva Noblezada, Princess Punzalan, and Broadway icon Lea Salonga, the film highlights the story of Rose Garcia (Eva), an undocumented Filipina girl living in a small town in Texas.
Unfortunately, her aspirations come to a halt when her mother, Priscilla (Princess), gets arrested by the state authorities for immigration issues. She then leaves her familiar life, fleeing to Austin, Texas, where she embarks on a whole new journey for herself.
Will she continue to pursue her lifelong dream as a musician, or will she set aside everything for the freedom of her family in the U.S.?
Distributed by Sony Pictures and ABS-CBN Cinematografo in the U.S., the film was first well-received by movie critics for its timely narrative and compelling soundtrack when it premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival in 2019 before its theatrical release on October 9, 2020.
“Yellow Rose,” under the direction of Diane Paragas, then went on to win awards, including the Special Jury Award-Best Narrative Feature at the Asian American International Film Festival in New York City and the Grand Jury Prize-Best Narrative Feature and Best Breakout Performance for Eva Noblezada at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, along with Rotten Tomatoes’ recommendation to include the movie among its Top 100 Films of 2020.
