P-Star and Jesse Diaz
Monday January 25, 2010 was the last showing of P-Star Rising at Tribeca Cinemas, before airing on PBS February 9, 2010. This great documentary gives the viewer a look into the life of 9 year-old Priscilla“P-Star” Diaz as she becomes a star.
The film follows Latina and Harlemite Priscilla Diaz, her father Jesse and her sister Solsky over a 4 year period. During this time Pricilla becomes P-Star – a rap artist. Trying to pick-up where her father left off, P-Star sets out to make it big in the music industry. You get to travel with her as she embarks on this journey to stardom, as she signs a record deal, performs for huge international audiences, becomes part of the a group and hits rock bottom.
Directed by Gabriel Noble, the film, balances the good, the bad and the ugly. You get a front row seat into the stress the Diaz family battles in show biz.
After the showing of the film Monday night, there was a question and answer session. On hand to field questions were the film’s Producer Marjan Tehrani, Director/Cinematographer Gabriel Noble, Jesse Diaz and P-Star.
P-Star, in response to a question about whether she had any fears during this time in her life depicted in the film, said the only thing that she feared was losing the trust of her father.

Tune in to PBS on Thursday, March 26 at 8:00 p.m.* for Live From Lincoln Center featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis at Frederick P. Rose Hall and hosted by 60 Minutes, CBS News Correspondent Lesley Stahl (left). Specially selected by Mr. Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center ’s Artistic Director, the band will perform music they’ve played through the ages and the world over: favorite tunes from the band’s expansive repertoire including original compositions by members of the band. The St. Louis Post Dispatch called the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra “… one of the strongest, swingingest bands in the land.”
Jazz musician, trumpeter, composer, bandleader, advocate for the arts and educator, Wynton Marsalis has helped propel jazz to the forefront of American culture in his role as Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and as an acclaimed artist. His prominent position in American culture was solidified in April 1997, when he became the first jazz artist to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in music for his work Blood on the Fields, which was commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center . He has served as the world-renowned arts organization’s artistic director as well as music director of the resident big band, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, since its inception in 1987.
“…the average American household has $9,000 in credit card debt,” Tisdale says. Continue reading
