The Kickstarter-funded doc, which is based on Cohen’s titular fashion blog and book, follows seven New Yorkers between the ages of 62 and 95 – many of whom were featured on the street-style blog – as they transcend stereotypes surrounding beauty and ageing with their unique and quirky fashion styles.

The film will receive its world premiere at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in April, followed by a UK theatrical release on May 9.

Vesna Cudic brokered the deal with Cohen and Plioplyte on behalf of Dogwoof Global.
