Radical Age: 70 year old Mixed Martial Arts fighter Ann Perez de Tejada

Radical Age

Mondays, Jan. 28 & Feb. 4, 2019 | 9pm ET/6 PT

Who says rebellion, activism and self-expression are the exclusive domain of youth? In Radical Age we meet six so-called seniors who have no interest in trudging the status quo path.

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 violent. At 70 she is the world’s oldest female mixed martial arts fighter. Helen Lambin got her first tattoo at the age of 75. Fast forward nine years and fifty tattoos, and this heavily inked senior is running out of room. James “Gypsy” Haake is the world’s oldest working drag queen. At 86 he has no plans to hang up his heels any time soon. Zillah Minx became a punk at the age of 15. Four decades later she is still raging against the machine with her punk band Rubella Ballet. Stephen Leafloor aka “Buddha” leverages fame with the Canadian Floor Masters, turning his decades-long passion for hip-hop into a powerful tool for change. These are the provocative trailblazers we meet in Radical Age in a series of authentic portraits of late life rebellion and rebirth.

Who are these people who are generating such strong social media buzz? What drives their desire for unconventional pursuits? How do ageing bodies and minds mesh with youth culture? Radical Age reshapes our ideas about what it means to stay relevant – at any age.
