Coming to theatres today, Friday, June 24: FROM THIS DAY FORWARD
Sharon Shattuck’s personal reflection on her transgender father debuted at Full Frame last year. Additional screenings include DOC NYC, AFI Docs, Hot Docs, Framline, Outfest, Camden, Sarasota, Traverse City, Hot Springs Doc, Anchorage, and LGBT fests in Seattle, Austin, North Carolina, and Milwaukee, among others.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
On the eve of her own wedding, Sharon Shattuck seeks to understand the relationship between her parents in this revealing portrait of an unorthodox family. When she was in middle school, Shattuck’s father came out as transgender, taking the name Trisha, yet remained married to the filmmaker’s straight-identified mother, Marcia. With sensitivity and affection, the film explores Trisha’s transformation, its repercussions on her family, and the complexity and resilience of love and marriage.
