F3 - Fullerton Film Festival - Colma: The Musical
Colma: The Musical
USA, 2006. 111 min.
Director: Richard Wong
COLMA: THE MUSICAL is the first Asian American musical film since 1961's Flower Drum Song and the first made by Asian Americans. It takes the traditional musical and re-invents it into a fresh and thoroughly modern personal look into early adulthood. With songs that you will be singing as you leave the theater, the film is a tour de force of musicality, talent and uniqueness of vision that should not and can not be missed. In the sleepy town of Colma, a suburb 5 miles south of San Francisco, best pals Rodel, Billy, and Maribel find themselves in a state of limbo; fresh out of high school, they are just beginning to explore a new world of part-time mall jobs and crashing late night college parties. As newfound revelations and romances challenge their relationships with one another and their parents, the trio must assess what to hold onto, and how to best follow their dreams. Special Jury Prize, 2006 San Francisco Asian American Film Festival. Special Jury Prize, 2006 VC Film Fest.
