Audience Honorable Mention

BLOCKS

Bridget Moloney

BLOCKS follows Ashleigh, who is consumed by parenthood to the point of sickness. When her illness manifests as vomiting plastic toy blocks, she as to find a way to set some boundaries.

Thirst-quenching! I was parched for a new look at a never aging subject and it arrived with this film. A unique look at parenting using leggos as the star. Who knew? I dig the way this filmmaker's brain works. I had no idea where this was going but I was so intrigued that I might have followed her anywhere to find out. — Elle S (Programmer)
