Ever since the official announcement that Brillante Mendoza’s latest movie “Ma’ Rosa” will be competing for the Palme d’Or in this year’s Cannes Film Festival, there has been no publicity as to what it is all about, that even the website of Cannes does not have any synopsis for it.
Early this afternoon, the much-anticipated trailer for “Ma’ Rosa” was finally unveiled online through the Vimeo account of film production company Keep Me Posted. The clip shows Rosa (Jaclyn Jose) being arrested during a buy-bust operation in her small store.
“Ma’ Rosa” is a CenterStage Productions as produced by Larry Castillo. It also stars Julio Diaz, Andi Eigenmann, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Baron Geisler, Mon Confiado, Neil Ryan Sese, Felix Roco, Jomari Angeles, Mercedes Cabral, Maria Isabel Lopez, Allan Paule, and Ruby Ruiz, among others.
The 69th Cannes Film Festival will run from May 11 to 22, 2016.
