Rota was a subject of a documentary film that will be submitted to the Cine Europa. Regular screening of the film is also scheduled in the Philippines by the end of the year.

“I hope that it will be an inspiration for all that are about to lose hope,” Rota said.

A portion of the film’s earnings will go to the Buklod Kalinga, the orphanage he grew up in before Rota was adopted by an Italian couple.
