1‘Yellow Rose’, January 14, 2021 on Blockbuster / Viaplay: History of undocumented immigrant has been 15 years in the making
‘Yellow Rose’ has been 15 years in the making. The film’s director and screenwriter, Diane Paragas, began writing the story before making a single film.
‘Yellow Rose’ is based on Diane Paragas’ own childhood experiences from Lubbock, Texas: An undocumented Filipino immigrant, teenager Rose (Eva Noblezada), lives in a small town in Texas and struggles to realize her dream of becoming a country musician; at the same time, she must decide whether she wants to stay with her family or leave the only home she knows.
One day, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement kicks in the doors of the family home, and Rose’s mother is put in jail. Suddenly Rose is forced to flee; and thus begins a journey through Texas – and into the mind of a torn teenager.
