Netizens are abuzz over the Cannes Film Festival entry Ma ‘Rosa, directed by the multi-awarded Brillante Mendoza. This is the director’s 5th entry to the prestigious film fest. His film Serbis was nominated for a Palme d'Or in 2008 and Taklub was awarded an Ecumenical Jury-Prize Special Mention in 2015.
At the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival however, one of the stars of the film, actress Maria Isabel Lopez, steals the attention of the cameras in her green Albert Andrada gown and beauty queen poses. A former Binibining Pilipinas title holder, Miss Lopez is definitely a stand out in the crowd.
