Join Center on Halsted, Weinberg/Newton Gallery, and Chicago Media Project at the screening of From This Day Forward, an award-winning documentary featuring artist Trisha Shattuck, whose work will be on display in Center on Halsted’s 3rd floor gallery beginning October 9th, 2015.
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. The screening is free and open to the public
This event is a part of transfluent, an ongoing public engagement focused on trans representation and advocacy formed in partnership with Weinberg/Newton Gallery and Chicago Media Project.
