Nana Mensah writes, directs and stars in the award-winning indie dramedy Queen of Glory.
'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.
While the cast is strong, featuring Meeko Gattuso, Oberon KA Adjepong and Adam Leon, it is Mensah who is the star. Ultimately, it’s her story – her parents owned a Christian bookstore too – and she lets us in, sharing the great joy and sadness of her experience.
