Free Screening of BRONX PRINCESS This Saturday in Little Ghana Neighborhood

Posted on August 25, 2009
BRONX PRINCESS tells the true story of Rocky Otoo, the Bronx-born teenage daughter of royal Ghanaian parents. With freedom in sight, this sassy, college-bound overachiever rebels against working at her mother’s beauty shop moves to Ghana, West Africa, with her royal father and reconciles her African heritage with her dream of independence. Funded by ITVS and airing next month on P.O.V. on PBS, the film will have a free screening at 9:00 PM on Saturday, August 29 at Mullaly Park, Bronx, NY. After the screening, Otoo, her Ghanaian family and filmmakers Yoni Brook and Musa Syeed will answer questions from the audience. This outdoor screening will be in Little Ghana––a neighborhood just blocks away from where it was filmed. Starting at 6:00 PM, there will be a block party, which will feature live music and poetry performances by West African artists from the film as well as hands-on arts activities for children and college resources.
