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.
