We'll be teaming up with our faves for an afternoon of giveaways, special drinks, and a viewing of this hilariously, inspiring film The Forty-Year Old Version!

The Forty-Year Old Version is the debut feature from writer/director/star Radha Blank produced by Lena Waithe.

⁣This film is the gift that brought laughter, introspection, and an opportunity to enjoy an image of Black Womanhood that we rarely see on screen!  Blank plays a fictionalized version of herself, a once-promising playwright stressed from navigating her day job, white gatekeepers, and turning 40. ⁣So what does she do? Start rapping, of course!⁣  This hilarious and oddly inspiring film earned Blank the directing prize at the festival's U.S. dramatic competition, as well as this year's Sundance Vanguard Award.⁣  We have all felt the sting of not being where we thought we should be or wanted to be in life. We love that this is the story of a Black woman going through a midlife crisis, which is something we never see in film. We want to enjoy it with you!

Matinees with Mamas is a FREE VIRTUAL event, so there's no reason not to come and get some Black joy!

Space is limited.
