52 tuesdays sophie hyde australian film
Sophie Hyde’s directorial debut, 52 Tuesdays, is a one of a kind film. The fascinating aspect of this intimate story is also the unique form representing the chronology of the story, as it was shot every Tuesday for 52 consecutive weeks. 

The filmmakers had set themselves the same rule, that they could only shoot on Tuesdays up until midnight and only consecutively, so whatever filmed on that day is what happens in the story on that day. 

The writers, Matthew Cormack and Sophie Hyde, created the structure first before they decided on character and story. Led by the very real performances of the collaborators playing the mother, “James” (Del Herbert-Jane) and teenage daughter “Billie” (Tilda Cobham-Hervey), the actors, all non-professional, were given the script one week at a time and only given the scenes that they were in. Consequently, the audience is also invited to experience these condensed events happening on Tuesdays.

Written By Matthew Cormack and Hyde, and directed by Hyde, 52 Tuesdays also stars Beau Travis Williams, Sam Althuzien, Imogen Archer, Mario Spate and Danica Moors.

16-year-old Billie’s reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans to 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, 52 TUESDAYS is an emotionally charged exploration of desire, responsibility and transformation.
