The amazing Australian film 52 Tuesdays, which won the Best Directing award at Sundance Film Festival in January, and the Crystal Bear award at Berlin Film Festival in February, will be launched in cinemas around Australia from the 1st of May.
16-year-old Billie’s 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.
The movie was filmed in a very unique way, once a week, every week for a year. In celebration of this concept, director Sophie Hyde and the team at Closer Productions have created a project to get everyone involved.
My 52 Tuesdays is a worldwide participatory project where people build and share a unique portrait of a year in their lives. Every week, every Tuesday, a question is posed to everyone involved – you answer by writing down your response and taking your photo with it.
