Following our discussion, join us for the Aya of Yop City screening on Wednesday the 8th of May at 7:30 pm in the AV Auditorium.

In the warm Ivory Coast’s working-class district of Abidjan or Yop City, the nineteen-year-old aspiring doctor, Aya, dreams of finishing her studies despite her father’s opposition. But, Aya lives in a poor West African township during the 1970s, where getting married to a rich man and starting a family is every girl’s aspiration–at least, that’s what Aya’s best friends, Bintou and Adjoua, are hoping for. Under Yopougon’s bright sun, three girls, three different destinies and three parallel lives intertwine, as life continues. Will Aya’s ambitions ever come true?

Watch the trailer below.

We look forward to seeing you there.
