091516-MaRosa_PUSH.jpgSa ulat ni Mario Dumaual para sa TV Patrol, napili ang pelikulang Ma’ Rosa ni direk Brillante Mendoza bilang official entry ng Pilipinas sa 2017 Oscar Awards Best Foreign Film. Ayon kay Film Academy of the Philippines director Edgardo Vinarao, ang rason kung bakit napili ang Ma’ Rosa ay, “kasi mabilis ang pacing.. yung tungkol sa drugs maganda yung technical niya, maganda ang photography niya and acting especially with Jaclyn Jose.”

Ayon sa report, naging mainit na kalaban ng Ma’ Rosa sa pinagpiliang mga pelikula Ang Babaeng Humayo ni Lav Diaz. 

Masaya naman si Direk Mendoza at ayon sa kanyang pahayag,” I’m very proud and happy! After 12 films and 11 years in the business as a director, I was finally acknowledged by the Film Academy of the Philippines.”

Makakalaban ng Ma’ Rosa ang humigit kumulang 80 international film entries sa Oscars 2017.
