Description:

From This Day Forward is a moving portrayal of an American family coping with the most intimate of transformations. When filmmaker Sharon Shattuck's artist father came out as transgender and changed her name to Trisha, her transition was difficult for her straight-identified, physician wife, Marcia, to accept. Having married and fallen in love with a man, Marcia found herself doubting whether she could love Trisha as a woman. And, as a heterosexual woman, she felt that the idea of walking down the street, holding hands with a woman, would paint a false picture of her own identity. At the time, with Sharon in her preteen years and focused on developing her own sense of self, her parents’ relationship seemed a mystery.

This showing is sponsored by Interweave which is a local group of LGBTQ members, friends and allies who meet once a month to have time together for discussions and special events. It is part of our annual events leading up to the Interweave church service on Sunday March 5.

The 4th Friday of each month at 7pm, the community is invited to view and discuss documentaries examining timely issues important to social justice. No admission is charged. Refreshments are served.
