Ep 282: Sophie Hyde


The director of the new film 52 Tuesdays, Sophie Hyde of Australia, is the guest on this Fandor sponsored episode of the podcast. The film explores the relationship between teenager Billie (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) whose mother is going through gender transitioning. Leading up to the process, James (Del Herbert-Jane), Billie’s mother, asks her to live with her Dad and only visit on Tuesday afternoons. The film follows their story over the course of one year on those Tuesdays. The film was also shot on Tuesdays over the course of one calendar year. The film is being distributed by Kino Lorber, opens in select cities on Friday, March 27th including the Quad Cinema in NYC;  and will also debut on Fandor.com on the same date.

Join the conversation on the companion My 52 Tuesdays app, 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. How much will you share?
