Trailer for the long-awaited film adaptation of Marguerite Abouet’s Aya de Yopougon, a series of six graphic novels about a young woman’s life in a small Ivorian town with illustrations by Clément Ouberie.“Welcome to Yopougon, a working-class neighborhood of Abidjan in the late 70s, renamed Yop City – to sound like an American movie! This is home to Aya and her two friends, Adjoua and Bintou. The’re 19-years-old, a time in your life when everything seems possible. But while Aya would like to become a doctor one day, her friends are more into nightclubbing at the local “maquis” and hunting for a husband. Around this dynamic trio, we cross characters with diverse destinies like Ignace, Aya’s runaround father who juggles several “offices”, and Moussa, the son of the powerful Bonaventure Sissoko who counts on his Toyota to pick up girls. There’s also Fanta and Koro, the mothers who try to protect their daughters. Or Grégoire, the “Parisian” who blows his cash at the famous hotel Ivoire.A true chorale comedy, Aya of Yop City is a chronicle of an unexpected Africa, modern and urban.”Follow on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Aya-de-Yopougon/98058886870VIEW TRAILER BELOW:
