Film screening, preshow activities and music.
Reflect on what Texas culture can look like when seen through the eyes of country music as we screen the award-winning film, Yellow Rose (2019). In rural Texas, a Filipino teen longs to make her mark on the world of country music. When an unexpected opportunity comes her way, she must make a choice between upholding her family’s traditions or leaving them all behind to pursue her lifelong aspiration. Directed by Diane Paragas, and staring Eva Noblezada, Princess Punzalan, Dale Watson, Liam Booth, and Lea Salonga, Yellow Rose was one of the first Filipino-American films to be released by a major Hollywood studio for theatrical release. “Heartfelt. Provocative. Affecting.” Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter.
