GKIDS Acquires “Aya of Yop City” to Release on Home Video with Kino Lorber

GKIDS and Kino Lorber Release

Aya of Yop City

on Blu-ray and DVD November 26

GKIDS and Kino Lorber are proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Aya of Yop City, from directors directed by Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie.

Set against the colorful and spirited backdrop of the Ivory Coast in the 1970s, Aya of Yop City is a vibrant, beautifully animated adaptation of the best-selling series of graphic novels by co-director Marguerite Abouet.

Aya is 19, and she loves her neighborhood of Yop City in Abidjan, where everyone knows each other. It’s always lively, with open markets, colorful fabrics, funky cafés and music everywhere. Her mom Fanta is the neighborhood’s most trusted healer. Her dad is a sales rep for a brewery, and certainly gets his fill of the product. While Aya has dreams of becoming a doctor, her two best friends, Adjoua and Bintou, just like to hang out and spend their evenings dancing, drinking and flirting with boys. Their ambition is to follow Plan C: Combs, Clothes and Chasing Men! But big trouble comes to town when Adjoua realizes she’s pregnant, and the baby’s father is the spoiled son of one of the richest and most feared men in the whole country. How can he possibly tell his old man?
