P-Star Rising, a riveting film by Gabriel Noble, follows the life of Priscilla P-Star Diaz as she and her father, Jesse, attempt to navigate the treacherous waters of the music business. Priscilla began rocking stages in Harlem at the tender age of nine. The film documents 4 years of the highs, lows, successes and drama of this super talented youngster and her journey to stardom. Priscilla’s dad, Jesse, has had to raise Priscilla and her sister alone, as her mom, Doris, is an HIV-positive drug addict. The most gripping scene in the film is when Priscilla, her dad and sister have a brief but sentimental reunion with Doris. While P-Star may not yet be a household name she has a lead role in the PBS show The Electric Company and continues to pursue her music dreams.
