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.
