About this movie

A skateboarder, a B-Boy and the world's oldest working drag queen – these are some of the people we meet in Radical Age, a documentary that follows six so-called seniors proving it's never too late to defy convention. Fierce and fit, 60-year-old Neal "The Dude" Unger tests his limits on the skateboard, winning peer approval and serious street cred. At 4 feet 11 inches, Ann Perez de Tejada is charming, funny, upbeat and fierce. At 70 she is the world's oldest female mixed martial arts fighter. Anger is the fuel that 58-year-old Stephen Leafloor uses to help kids transform their pain into dance that defies trauma, while 40 years into her punk career, 56-year-old singer Zillah Minx still rages at the inequalities of this world. Following the death of her husband, 84-year-old Helen Lambin transformed her body into an inked canvas that reveals a progressive value system. These are the provocative trailblazers profiled in a series of authentic portraits of late life rebellion and rebirth.
