First Trailer For Brillante Mendoza’s Cannes Competition Drama ‘Ma’ Rosa’

Coming back to Cannes Film Festival after last year’s Taklub in the Un Certain Regard section, Filipino director Brillante Mendoza will return to the main competition line-up with Ma’ Rosa. His first time back in the section since he picked up Best Director in 2009 for Kinatay, the first trailer has arrived today for the intense-looking drama.

According to the official synopsis, the plot follows “Rosa, mother of four, owns a small convenient store in the slums of Manila. To make ends meet, Rosa and her husband, Nestor, sell narcotics on the side, until the police comes to arrest them. Their children have to trade the little they have left to pay off the police.”

Check out the trailer below for the film starring Jaclyn Rose, Julio Diaz, Felix Roco, Andi Eigenmann, Kristofer King, Mercedes Cabral, Jomari Angeles, and Maria Isabel Lopez.
