In celebration of Filipino American History Month, 1091 Pictures acquired the digital rights to Dante Basco’s directorial debut with The Fabulous Filipino Brothers.

The film made its world premiere at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival from the acclaimed director that he co-wrote with his brother Darion Basco. They starred alongside their entire family brothers Derek Basco, Dionysio Basco, and sister Arianna Basco.

The story is told in four vignettes from Northern California to The Philippines with cockfights, adultery, romance, food, and family. The film follows the four brothers while their Fil-Am family prepares for the ultimate Filipino event, a wedding.

“I wanted to make this film to pay homage to where I’m from. Both the places we come from and the stories of my family, from which is the foundation of who I’ve become. I got to write and cast my real-life brothers to play The Fabulous Filipino Brothers in the film and in doing so, I got to direct the three actors I know best in the world, as we’ve shared a journey in Hollywood of 35 years now. Getting a chance to write specific characters to play each actor’s strengths and being inspired by very intimate stories in our families folklore gave me a unique experience, it feels like everything in my career thus far has led me to make this movie, and just maybe people can see a little bit of their family in mine,” stated Dante Basco in a press release.

1091 Pictures plans to launch the films on digital platforms on February 8 next year.
