It is about time a movie this storyline and with Paolo Ballesterros in the leading role is finally being made. Under the co-production of APT Entertainment, “Die Beautiful” is written and directed by Jun Robles Lana. Congratulations Paolo!
Watch out for “DIE BEAUTIFUL” to be topbilled by Paolo Ballesteros (finally a solo lead role in film!), written and directed by Jun Robles Lana. This comedy-drama indie film is about a Filipino trans-woman (who loves to impersonate celebrities) with the dying wish to be buried as Lady Gaga. But then the body of Paolo’s character gets taken by a Chinese-Filipino family who dresses the trans-woman as a man in the funeral service. Gay friends steal the dead body, which they dress up every day to honor the last request. The film, like Barber’s Tales, is already selected by the Hong Kong Asian Film Financing Forum for funding assistance, to be co-produced by APT Entertainment. (Source: Mell Navarro)
