HARANA (SERENADE)

Directed by Marie Jamora

Cast: Anthea Neri, Frencheska Farr, Michael Rosete

Maya is a cover band singer in a Las Vegas casino-hotel lounge trying to connect with her daughter who is growing up in the Philippines without her. Wrestling between her passion for songwriting and becoming a pop-culture photocopy for an un-listening audience, she realizes that music — the one thing that keeps them distant – can also bring them closer together.

After FLIP THE RECORD (a hit with CAAMFest audiences) Marie Jamora is back with an outstanding and bold new narrative film. This crowd pleaser will tingle your senses with amazing music and memorable performances.

Director’s Biography: Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, writer-director MARIE JAMORA was named one of the “Five Visionary Asian-American Female Filmmakers” in Kore Magazine’s ‘New Hollywood’ issue. Her short film, FLIP THE RECORD, screened at over thirty festivals worldwide, winning the Grand Jury Award for “Best Narrative Short” at Urbanworld and her first feature, WHAT ISN’T THERE (ANG NAWAWALA), premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival. She was executive producer and the director of FAMILY STYLE, an Asian food and pop culture show with Justin Lin’s YOMYOMF and Warner Bros/Stage 13.
