From This Day Forward

Official Selection Doc Edge Festival 2016


From This Day Forward

Director Sharon Shattuck
Duration 76 mins

A moving portrayal of an American family coping with one of the most intimate of transformations. When director Sharon Shattuck’s father came out as transgender and changed her name to Trisha, Sharon was in the awkward throes of middle school. Her father’s transition to female was difficult for her straight-identified mother, Marcia, to accept, but her parents stayed together.

As the Shattuck family reunites to plan her wedding, Sharon seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents’ marriage survived the radical changes that threatened to tear them apart.
