Be the first to see the best of the festival from across the pond with our exclusive Sundance Film Festival: London Tour preview screening of Zola.

The year is 2015. Zola, or @zolarmoon, tweets: ‘Wanna hear a story about why me & this bitch here fell out???????? It's kind of long but full of suspense.’

Thus begins a Twitter thread that would go down in history, and from it comes Zola, an acidic, hypnotic thrill-ride from director Janicza Bravo, writer Jeremy O. Harris, and the woman herself (depicted in a star-making performance by Taylour Page).

Zola, a Detroit waitress, finds herself flung into a friendship with the chaotic Stefani (Riley Keough), a stripper en route to Florida for a 'hoe trip'. Zola is seduced into joining Stefani to make some quick cash, but their journey soon becomes a sleepless 48-hour odyssey involving a lot more than she bargained for.

Please note: This film contains flickering or flashing lights that may affect those with photosensitive epilepsy.

This screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A.
