YELLOW ROSE

The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival is kicking off with the world premier of Yellow Rose by Diane Paragas. The film follows Rose Garcia (played by Eve Nobvlezada), a 17-year-old Filipina American in Texas. When her mom is arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Rose undertakes a musical journey while facing deportation back to the Philippines. Inspired by the music of country musicians like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Willie Nelson, the original composition accompanied by Noblezada’s captivating voice becomes the soundtrack of Rose’s wanderings akin to American westerns.
