"Y’all wanna hear a story about why me & this bitch here fell out? It’s kind of long but full of suspense.” On this episode of The Playlist Podcast, we have on writer, director and actor Janicza Bravo, who directed and co-wrote A24's Sundance indie "Zola." Delayed by a year because of the pandemic, "Zola" finally came out earlier this summer and now, the film arrives on DVD and Blu-ray (plus Digital) on August 14. If you don't know "Zola," it is an insane ride that's nightmarish yet entertaining. Based on the viral 148-tweet Twitter thread from Detroit waitress A’Ziah “Zola” King about her wild road trip to Florida, "Zola" centers on that title character (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. But that glamorous trip full of “hoeism” rapidly transforms into a 48-hour journey into something much darker. "Zola" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray™ (plus Digital) September 14 from Lionsgate and Playlist contributor Sharronda Williams spoke to Bravo about the ins and outs of her complex, dark and comical movie.
