A24 released the first look teaser trailer for Janicza Bravo’s Zola that premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. The indie comedy/drama film is based on the Twitter thread that went viral after stripper A’ziah “Zola” King posted it in October 2015.
Zola stars Taylour Paige, Riley Keough, Nicholas Braun and Colman Domingo.
“You wanna hear a story about why me & this bitch here fell out? It’s kind of long but full of suspense.”
Zola meets Stefani at a restaurant where Zola waitresses, and the two immediately click 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.
