Join Harmony Institute and the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons School of Design for a community screening of the POV film From This Day Forward, with special guest, Director Sharon Shattuck. Q&A will immediately follow.

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.

Free and open to the public with an RSVP. Organized by Harmony Institute, in collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV and the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons School of Design.
