ROSITA premieres in the Phillipines

The Danish film Rosita has had its premiere in the Phillipines at the 12th Cinemalaya Phillipine Independent Film Festival.

The film stars actress Mercedes Cabral as a Filipina mail-order bride torn between an old man and his son. She is known for her roles in Brillante Mendoza’s award winning films Serbis, Kinatay, and Thy WombIt was Mendoza who recommended Cabral to the Danish filmmaker Frederikke Aspöck when they met at the Marrakech Film Festival in Morocco. Aspöck eventually won Best Director for Rosita at the Moscow International Film Festival last year.

Rosita premiered last year in Denmark.
