Actress Gina Rodriguez In Person


Majo Tonorio, a.k.a. “Filly Brown,” is a raw, young Los Angeles hip-hop artist who spits rhymes from the heart. With an incarcerated mother, and a father struggling to provide for his daughters, a record contract could be the ticket out for her family. But when a sleazy record producer offers Majo a crack at stardom, she is suddenly faced with some daunting choices. The alluring record deal would help Majo reunite her family, but at the cost of losing her true voice as an artist and the friends who helped her reach the cusp of success.

FILLY BROWN celebrates the power of music and family through the inspiring story of a bold young artist striving to find her voice and seize her dreams without compromise. Directed with tenacious grit and authenticity by Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos and fused with a fierce hip-hop score, FILLY BROWN is propelled by an exceptional cast that features Golden Globe nominee Lou Diamond Phillips, Academy Award(r) nominee Edward James Olmos, legendary Latin music sensation Jenni Rivera in her final performance, and magnetic breakout star Gina Rodriguez in the electrifying title role.
