Sophie Hyde • 2013 • Australia • A teenager's mother undergoes a gender transition.
When her mother reveals her female to male gender transition, 16 year-old Billie is catapulted into radically new circumstances, moving in with her father and confined to visiting her mother on Tuesday afternoons. The pressures of growing up and articulating her hopes for the future take on new meaning, as the mother and daughter chart diverse but intersecting paths to independence and acceptance.
Sophie Hyde's feature film debut premiered at Sundance, where it won the World Cinema - Dramatic Directing Award, and Berlin, where it won the Crystal Bear for Best Film in Generation 14plus.
