Acclaimed film from rapper RADHA BLANK to premiere this week on Netflix

Winner of the Directing Prize at The 2020 Sundance Film Festival, The Forty-Year-Old Version is a hilariously candid and deeply personal debut from writer/director Radha Blank.

Radha, a down-on-her-luck NY playwright, is desperate for a breakthrough before 40.

But when she foils what seems like her last shot at success, she’s left with no choice but to reinvent herself as rapper RadhaMUSPrime.

The Forty-Year-Old Version follows Radha as she vacillates between the worlds of Hip Hop and theatre on a quest to find her true voice.

A fresh addition to the New York City slice-of-life canon shot in lush black and white 35mm, Blank’s film is an ode to the unfulfilled, and those whose adversity gives them a one-of-a-kind story to tell.

The Forty-Year-Old Version premieres on Friday October 9 at 6PM AEDT on Netflix
