On April 19th, Pantelion Films will proudly present Filly Brown, a captivating and inspirational urban drama that tells the story of “Majo” (a.k.a. Filly Brown), interpreted by breakout star Gina Rodriguez (named Hollywood’s newest “it” girl by the LA Times), as she navigates through the Urban Latino music world as an aspiring rapper, all in hopes of reuniting her troubled family, which includes an incarcerated mother played by the late Jenni Rivera.
Directed by Michael D. Olmos and Youseff Delara, Filly Brown is a bold celebration of the power of music and family. The film also stars Golden Globe nominee Lou Diamond Phillips and Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos.
The Miami International Film Festival and Hispanicize will be hosting the Miami premiere of this film in Miami Beach on April 9th.
Filly Brown is also scheduled to be the opening night film for Worldfest.org in Houston this coming week, with two screenings to be offered during the festival.
