P.O.V. | Bronx Princess | PBS

http://www.pbs.org/pov/pov2009/bronxprincess Rocky Otoo is the Bronx-bred teenage daughter of Ghanaian parents, and she's no pushover. She is a sassy high-achiever bound for college. With freedom in sight, Rocky rebels against her mother's rules. When their relationship reaches a breaking point, Rocky flees to her father, a chief in Ghana. What follows is captured in "Bronx Princess," by Yoni Brook and Musa Syeed, airing on PBS Tuesday, September 22, 2009 (check local listings). The film shows a tumultuous coming-of-age story set in a homeland both familiar and strange. Rocky's precocious — and very American — ideas of a successful, independent life conflict with her father's traditional African values. Reconciling her dual legacies becomes an unexpected chapter in this unforgettable young woman's education. PBS airdate: September 22, 2009.
