Sporty Sapphic Film ‘Rookie’ Unveils Official Poster

Rookie

Heads up, volleyball lovers! Anima Studios has just released the poster for the sapphic movie ‘Rookie.’

‘Rookie’ is about an awkward 6-footer teen who is forced to learn and play volleyball half-heartedly when the Catholic school she transferred to did not have a basketball team but her whole life eventually changes when she meets the team’s star player. 

It’s a sapphic love story with sporty themes that is sure to excite sports lovers and all sapphic film enthusiasts across the globe, especially since ‘Rookie’ is directed by Samantha Lee of the award-winning film ‘Baka Bukas’ and ‘Billie and Emma.’ 

The sapphic film is written by Natts Jadaone and will also star Aya Fernandez, Agot Isidro, and Pat Tingjuy.

While most details of the film are still kept under wraps, it has been confirmed that Filipino star volleyball players Alyssa Valdez, Tots Carlos, and Ara Galang will be making cameo appearances in the film. Up-and-coming superstar player Jelai Gajero is also set to join the movie.

Lee shared in an IG post that Valdez was her gateway to the wonderful world of volleyball when she first started doing research for ‘Rookie.’ Meanwhile, Jadaone further revealed that the first draft of the screenplay already included a scene featuring Valdez. 

“Because what is a volleyball film without the face of PH volleyball?” Jadaone said.

Co-produced by KUMU and Project 8, ‘Rookie’ is an official entry to the 2023 Cinemalaya Independent Philippine Film Festival.

 

You can watch ‘Rookie’ from August 4 to 13.
