Ayala Malls, the premier lifestyle destination in the metro, is once again at the forefront of promoting Filipino artistic brilliance. On November 28, as a highlight of its Bravo! Filipino program, Ayala Malls proudly presents the premiere of Asian Persuasion at Ayala Malls Greenbelt 3 Cinemas.
Bravo! Filipino is the brainchild of Ayala Chairman Emeritus Jaime Zobel de Ayala. Conceived in 2008, this advocacy program aims to celebrate local heritage and culture, showcasing Filipinos’ world-class talent on a larger stage. Through special screenings and festivals, the spotlight is directed towards Filipino filmmakers, providing them with a valuable avenue to share their stories and perspectives with a broader audience. This contributes significantly to enriching our nation’s cultural tapestry.
Directed by the talented Jhett Tolentino, Asian Persuasion unfolds the tale of Mickey, a down-on-his-luck chef portrayed by seasoned actor Dante Basco. In a plot filled with twists and turns, Mickey devises an intricate scheme to evade alimony payments to his ex-wife, Avery, played by the esteemed KC Concepcion. The film also boasts the exceptional talents of Paolo Montalban and Kevin Kreider, with notable cameos from Apl. De. Ap, Rachel Alejandro, and Tony Labrusca.
Chrissy Roa, Group Marketing and Communications Head for Ayala Land Estates,

Through initiatives like Bravo! Filipino, we aim not only to spotlight incredible Filipino talent but also to inspire our audiences with authentic, global entertainment.”
Before Ayala Malls Cinemas’ official screening, Director Jhett Tolentino, along with cast members Mike Ang, Dante Basco, Kevin Kreider, Paolo Montalban, and Geneva Carr, extends a warm welcome to guests attending an intimate press conference, hosted in Greenbelt 3. The venue has been artfully transformed into a captivating setting, reflecting the essence of the film. As the cast shares insights into the movie, anticipation builds for the exciting premiere ahead. Additionally, between the press conference and the screening, the cast will have a mini meet and greet at the cinema lobby, offering a chance for them to say hi to their fans.
