MANILA — “Yellow Rose,” the acclaimed film about Filipino immigrants in the United States, is finally debuting in the Philippines.
Starting January 29, the Diane Paragas film will be available to stream on the ABS-CBN platforms KTX.ph and iWant TFC, as well as Cignal PPV and Sky Cable PPV.
“Yellow Rose,” which stars Eva Noblezada as the title character, began it film festival circuit in 2019, before its US release in October 2020.
