Screening: Aya of Yop City

Part of France-Atlanta 2017

Adapted from Marguerite Abouet's best-selling graphic novels "Aya of Yop City" (written and directed by Abouet) has earned worldwide praise for its representation of relevant social and political topics in West Africa.

In conjunction with November Second Sunday at the High Museum of Art, France-Atlanta presents a free screening of "Aya of Yop City" (with English subtitles), allowing attendees to experience daily life in Côte d’Ivoire through Aya’s eyes. Peppered with humor and drama, the film also features a catchy soundtrack, mixing West African genres with French pop. "Aya of Yop City" is entertaining and informative for mature audiences as it shows the relatable daily life of a young woman from Abidjan.
