Sundance Winner, 52 Tuesdays, has just debuted a new trailer ahead of its theatrical release on May 1st.

Although Richard Linklater's [Boyhood](movie:989626) was the talk of the festival, it wasn't the only film to employ an interesting filming technique. Sophie Hyde's [52 Tuesdays](movie:1331993) was filmed chronologically on every Tuesday for a year. The result is a compelling docudrama which deals with one girl's mother's transformation into a man. Check out the trailer, and a synopsis, below:

Sixteen-year-old Billie is blindsided by the news that her mother is planning to transition from female to male and that, during this time, Billie will live at her father’s house. Billie and her mother have always been extremely close, so the two make an agreement they will meet every Tuesday during their year apart. As her mother transitions and becomes less emotionally available, Billie covertly explores her own identity and sexuality with two older schoolmates, testing the limits of her own power, desire, and independence.

What did you think? Does the trailer look like it's a worthy Sundance winner? Let us know below.
