Movie Info

Filmmaker Gabriel Noble follows nine year old hip-hop phenomenon P-Star as she prepares to move out from under the shadow of her single-parent father/mentor and take the music industry by storm. By night P-Star keeps the clubs rocking, and by day she greets her fans at public appearances. Back in the day, P-Star's dad produced such groundbreaking acts as Ice-T and 2 Live Crew; these days, all of his energy goes toward helping his daughter reach the top of the charts. But despite her age, P-Star is fiercely independent. She's never stopped thinking about her mother, and after securing a record deal she begins to voice her own opinions about how to create a successful public image.more

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

What's most interesting about this documentary is the perspective it adds to our view of contemporary American youth, and our society's astonishing adulation of adolescent fame and wealth.

Audience Reviews for P-Star Rising

Saw the premiere and an after-show with some of the cast. Sure it was interesting, and an original story. Don't know if I would've been quite so taken and found it so believable, though, if it weren't for the see-the-cast-on-stage after. So the movie on its own -- I'd say 4 stars.
