Free outdoor screening of animation movie Aya of Yop City on Friday July 12 at Tompkins Square Park. #FilmsOnTheGreen
It’s the end of the 70s and nineteen-year-old Aya lives in Youpougon, a working-class neighborhood in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Aya divides her time between school, her family, and her two best friends, Adjoua and Bintou, who only think of sneaking out as soon as night falls. Things go awry when Adjoua becomes pregnant, causing the friends to try and figure out what is best for the situation. In French with English subtitles.
