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

So began the infamous 2015 Twitter thread by A’Ziah King, documenting a Floridian overnight odyssey.

Zola (Taylour Paige) strikes up a friendship with Stefani (Riley Keough), who seduces her to join a weekend of dancing and partying in Florida. Though promised lucrative strip clubs, Stefani, her nameless pimp (Colman Domingo), and idiot boyfriend (Nicholas Braun), instead deliver a 48-hour fever dream, in this see-it-to-believe-it tale.

While the vibrant score by Mica Levi (Monos, SWIFF’20) and dreamscape imagery of Aussie cinematographer Ari Wegner (The Power of the Dog, SWIFF’22) turn the drama up to eleven, writer/director Janicza Bravo gifts the wild story a lightly poignant touch, sure to make Zola a conversation-piece to match the tweetstorm that broke the internet.

“The stripper tweetstorm movie you’ve been waiting for … A wild candy-colored road saga with piles of style and postmodern flair, told in the key of smartphone.” – Entertainment Weekly
