WATCH: Eva Noblezada, Princess Punzalan, Lea Salonga shine in ‘Yellow Rose’ trailer
'Yellow Rose' is Eva's debut film and Lea and Princess' big screen comeback

MANILA, Philippines – The trailer for Yellow Rose is out, giving audiences a bigger glimpse at Eva Noblezada, Princess Punzalan, and Lea Salonga in their roles.

The film tells the story of an undocumented Filipina from Texas who dreams of being a country music singer, even as she faces the threat of deportation.

This marks the big screen comebacks of veteran actresses Lea and Princess, and the debut film of the Tony-nominated Eva.

Yellow Rose has already won several awards, including the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2019 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, and the Best Breakout Actor award for Eva.

The film was directed by Diane Paragas, who herself moved to Texas from the Philippines at age 4, after her family escaped the Marcos Martial Law regime.

“My hope is that Yellow Rose puts a human face on the plight of Dreamers, while entertaining the audience with original Americana music that they might not have listened to before,” she said on the film’s website.

Yellow Rose will be screened as the opening film of the Asian American International Film Festival in New York on July 25. – Rappler.com
