‘Zola’ will be coming to THEATERS this SUMMER!
Zola is a 2020 American biographical comedy-drama film directed by Janicza Bravo, from a screenplay by Bravo and Jeremy O. Harris. It stars Taylour Paige, Riley Keough, Nicholas Braun, Ari’el Stachel, and Colman Domingo.
It had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2020. It is scheduled to be released on June 30, 2021, by A24.
The film is based on an infamous 148-tweet Twitter thread in which Zola meets a sex worker named Stefani at a restaurant where Zola waitresses, and the two immediately bond over pole dancing. Only a day after they exchange numbers, Stefani invites Zola on a cross-country road trip, where the goal is to make as much money as possible dancing in Florida strip clubs. Zola agrees, and suddenly she is trapped in the craziest, most unexpected trip of her life, partaking in a wild two-day trip with Stefani, her boyfriend Derrek, and Stefani’s violent pimp, X.
