The Kids Grow Up

Documentary filmmaker Doug Block (51 Birch Street) has captured much of his daughter Lucy’s life on camera. Now his only child is turning eighteen and soon she’ll be leaving home for college. Lucy’s imminent departure is the springboard for The Kids Grow Up, a humorous and deeply moving first person look at father-daughter relationships, modern day parenting, and the looming empty nest.


The Kids Grow Up had its’ world premiere at IDFA (International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam) 2009.
