From This Day Forward: Free Community Movie Night
February 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Each month, Sellars Project Space, in partnership with the Salida Creative District, hosts a variety of inspiring and thought-provoking documentaries. These films are carefully selected to connect with the community by inspiring a stronger awareness of social issues, nature & the environment, as well as the arts and artists, to enhance community engagement and participation.
February’s Movie: From This Day Forward
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.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., movie begins at 7:00 p.m. There will be a short discussion period following the film – all are welcome to stay for the conversation.
Space is limited – those interested in attending the screening can go to www.sellarsprojectspace.org/movies to reserve their seats.
The movie is free and open to the public, with donations accepted at the event. All donations go to support programs by Sellars Project Space and the Salida Creative District
