Join us after the screening for a live Q&A with writer/director/actor Nana Mensah, and producers Kelley Robins Hicks and Jamund Washington. The Q&A will be hosted by Carmen Thompson (Cultural Curator & Programmer at We Are Parable).

Sarah Obeng (Nana Mensah) is the brilliant child of Ghanaian immigrants, who is quitting her Ivy League PhD programme to follow her married lover to Ohio. When her mother dies suddenly, she bequeaths her daughter a Christian bookstore in the Bronx neighbourhood where Sarah was raised.

Funny and moving this is a modern take on the classic immigrant's tale as its heroine is reborn through her unexpected inheritance.

We Are Parable are screening Queen of Glory at GFT as part of their nationwide BFI and National Lottery backed ‘Who We Are’ season, which aims to screen and celebrate Black Cinema from around the world. Find out more at
