Queen of Glory15

Directed by Nana Mensah | USA | 2021 | 1h 18m | Starring Nana Mensah, Madeline Weinstein, Russell G. Jones, Elia Monte-Brown

A doctoral student at Columbia University is all set to abandon her studies to follow her lover across the country when her mother suddenly dies. Not only does she have a funeral to plan and a demanding family to appease, but she also has to grapple with running her mother’s bookstore in the Bronx. In this rare glimpse into the mores of New York’s Ghanaian-American community, writer, star and first-time feature director Nana Mensah crafts a heartwarming journey of self-discovery with compassion and humour.

Join us on Saturday 3rd September for a special screening introduced by independent community cinema programmer Tatenda Jemera (MAONA Art) and followed by a Q&A with the film’s producer Kelley Robins Hicks. This screening will take place on National Cinema Day, with tickets available at the discounted rate of £3 each (purchase tickets as normal through our website, and the discount will be automatically applied at the checkout).

Reviews

‘The child of Ghanaian parents herself, Mensah traverses the polyglot turf well, infusing details with astute affection and understated laughs. Even the occasional slapstick proves more sweet than silly.’
Lisa Kennedy, The New York Times

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
