Zola

October 01, 2021

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

Based on a viral Twitter thread, this zany road trip comedy about a pair of strippers on a rambunctious 48-hour Florida adventure is a buzzy, cinematic thrill ride of the first order.

"Y'all wanna hear a story about why me & this bitch here fell out? It's kind of long but full of suspense."

Thus began the odyssey of one A'Ziah King, aka ZOLA. From acclaimed writer/director Janicza Bravo, Zola's stranger-than-fiction saga, which she first told in a now iconic series of viral, uproarious tweets, comes to dazzling cinematic life.

Zola (newcomer Taylour Paige), a Detroit waitress, strikes up a new friendship with a customer, Stefani (Riley Keough), who seduces her to join a weekend of dancing and partying in Florida. What at first seems like a glamorous trip full of "hoeism" rapidly transforms into a 48-hour journey involving a nameless pimp, an idiot boyfriend, some Tampa gangsters and other unexpected adventures in this wild, see-it-to-believe-it tale. D: Janicza Bravo, US, 2021
