NewFest at The Center Presents

From This Day Forward

May 10, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

From This Day Forward

Director Sharon Shattuck, Producer Martha Shane, and her parents/documentary subjects Marcia and Trisha Shattuck were present to discuss family, marriage, love, art, and transgender identity­­and how film can provide new perspectives.

From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with the most intimate of transformations. With her own wedding just around the corner, filmmaker Sharon Shattuck returns home to examine the mystery at the heart of her upbringing: how her transgender father, Trisha, and her straight­identified mother, Marcia, stayed together against all odds. But From This Day Forward isn’t just a portrait of a transgender person and her spouse; it is also portrait of a prolific artist grappling with her identity and the universal human experience through her medium of choice: oil on canvas.
