About The Film

From This Day Forward is 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 Shattucks reunite to plan Sharon’s wedding, she seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents’ marriage survived the radical changes that threatened to tear them apart.

Trisha's Artwork

From This Day Forward isn’t just a portrait of a transgender person and her spouse; it is a portrait of a prolific artist grappling with her identity and the universal human experience through her medium of choice: oil on canvas. Trisha documented her transition, and continues to muse about gender and expression, in hundreds of vibrant paintings that she loosely labels “abstract expressionism.” To see a small sampling of her artwork, visit her website, shattuckart.com
