EXCLUSIVE: Filly Brown makes its world premiere Friday at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival as one of the films buyers are watching for. Co-directed by Youssef Delara and Michael Olmos, the film is about a young hip-hop artist from Los Angeles whose budding career comes to a crossroads when she’s offered a crack at stardom by a shady producer. With a mother in jail, she knows the opportunity could get her family out of a jam, but taking the deal means leaving behind the true friends who helped her get this far. Gina Rodriguez plays Filly Brown, and Edward James Olmos, Lou Diamond Phillips and Jenni Rivera also star. Here is a short scene from the film.
