The Australian film and Sundance favorite is about a relationship between a daughter and her father who is transitioning from female to male.

52 Tuesdays is a drama about 16-year-old Billie and her father, James, who is undergoing a female-to-male gender transition.

Billie only sees her father on Tuesdays while her father transitions, so the director only filmed the movie on Tuesdays over the course of a year.


The entirely non-professional cast received scripts one week at a time for only the scenes they were in to keep the timing of her father's transition realistic.

The film launched a global project with an app called "My 52 Tuesdays" where the film asks a question every Tuesday and users submit an image of themselves holding their response on a piece of paper.


There was also a "My 52 Tuesdays" photo booth on-location at the Sundance Film Festival where users could submit their photos.
