Blocks

All Blocks move to the rhythm until one steps out of line. This metaphor shows how traditional masculinity restricts personal development while growing up.

Director Statement

"Blocks" deals with rigid stereotypes, in particular my perspective on masculinity and how it restricts personal development growing up.

I tell stories about serious topics, but deliver in a playful way, so that people of all ages can enjoy and reflect on them.
