From This Day Forward
POV Season 29
Feature Film | 10/09/2016 | 75 Mins

From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with one of life's most intimate transformations. When director Sharon Shattuck's father came out as transgender and began living as 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 Shattucks reunite to plan Sharon's wedding, she seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents' marriage, and their family, survived intact.
