Queen of Glory

Nana Mensah | 2021 | 78 MINS
A Ghanaian-American scientist must cope with death, betrayal and cultural expectations in writer/director/star Nana Mensah’s winning indie of a woman who is a fish out of water in her own culture.

In Detail

'Queen of Glory' is the story of Sarah Obeng, the brilliant child of Ghanaian immigrants, who is quitting her Ivy League PhD program to follow her married lover to Ohio.

When her mother dies suddenly, she bequeaths her daughter a Christian bookstore in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx where Sarah was raised.

A follow-up on the classic immigrant's tale, Queen of Glory provokes laughter and empathy, as its heroine is reborn through her inheritance.

It masterfully uses dilemmas of culture and selfhood to craft a wonderful, intimate story of discovery.
