Official Selection 2020
Official Selection for Still Voices Short Film Festival 2020 Online Announced.
The Blocks is an animated short film made by the Rialto Community Drug Team family support group, Step by Step with artist Gareth Gowran and his small production company Splitting Borders. A group of five local women, led by Joanie Whyte, worked emotionally and creatively on a process to explore the generational impact of addiction on family life. They invited Gareth Gowran into the journey to support them to develop a story and script that would be translated into an animated film. The result is an intimate depiction of life through the eyes and hearts of girls in Dublin sixty years ago.
Gareth Gowran is an illustrator and animator based in Dublin, Ireland. He holds a BA(Hons) Animation Degree from Colaiste Dhulaigh in conjunction with Wolverhampton University, graduated 2018; and a Higher National Diploma in Animation from Ballyfermot College of Further Education, graduated 2014.
