52 Tuesdays

16-year-old Billies reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans for gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week  only on Tuesdays  these unique filmmaking rules bring a rare authenticity to this emotionally charged story of desire, responsibility and transformation. Sensitively directed by Sophie Hyde, this quietly extraordinary film is brave in the best sense&the story side-steps any polemic distractions about prejudice or gender politics to focus on the fraught relationship between child and parent. 3AW
