Nana Mensah directs, writes and stars in this authentic comedy drama about personal endurance when life finds itself falling apart.

‘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.

Funny, kind and moving QUEEN OF GLORY delivered with whit from a refreshing new voice in cinema.

Look out for some creative collaborations commissioned as part of BFI New Release Strategy Scheme, in partnership with Bookbag Exeter.
