Our Picks + Zola

Sunday 5 September 2021, by Abla Kandalaft, Coco Green

More Slasher talk! We go back in time to Series 2 this time to discuss gore, twists, popularity and the show’s knack for realistic edges. We also highlight Shiny_Flakes: The Teenage Drug Lord, available to watch on Netflix. 

Our focus this week is Zola, a brash, colourful, ballsy filmic take on a viral Twitter thread by stripper Aziah "Zola" King and the Rolling Stone article based on it "Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted". 

We discuss the film’s experimental approach and bold choices as well as depictions of sex workers and the world both inhabited and conveyed by Zola, as well as making a career out of social media.
