Philippines’ entry to the Palme d’Or this year, none other than a film from Brillante Ma Mendoza titled Ma’ Rosa starring Jacklyn Jose.
Watch the trailer here:
“Ma’ Rosa” will compete with 38 other films from different countries, including “The Unknown Girl” from previous Palme d’Or winners Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne and “The Last Face,” directed by Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn.
The movie also stars Jose’s daughter Andi Eigenmann, Julio Diaz, Baron Geisler and Mark Anthony Fernandez.
No news of its local release yet but Solar Pictures will probably release it soon.
