Sundance 2020 award winner THE 40 YEAR OLD VERSION isn’t afraid to take White Liberals to task

Our spotlight on Black cinema continues today on the podcast with our look at THE 40 YEAR OLD VERSION. Written, directed and produced by first-time director Radha Blank, this sharp comedy won the 2020 US Dramatic Competition Directing Prize at Sundance. Join us as we discuss this semi-autobiographical tale of a Black creative grappling with asserting an authentic voice in a marketplace governed by white gatekeepers demanding compromise.
