I watched this comedy on Netflix. Writer, director and star Radha Blank won the top directing prize at Sundance for her film. The headline from a Guardian Review (https://www.theguardian.com/film/2020/oct/11/the-40-year-old-version-review-radha-blank-sundance) calls the film “razor-sharp satire.” The reviewer goes on to report that, “It’s a sharply observed comment on the ways women of colour are encouraged to contort their creativity in order to be consumed by white audiences.” The film is both funny and thought- provoking. When diverse voices struggle and succeed to break through and give me the opportunity to hear what they have to say, I always benefit. Authentic art has power to transform.
