The Kids Grow Up

Doug Block
Doug Block, Lori Cheatle

In this follow-up to his internationally acclaimed documentary 51 Birch Street, filmmaker Doug Block once again turns his lens on his family to tell a larger universal story. From the moment of his daughter Lucy's birth, Block has captured much of her life - and their relationship - on camera. Now his only child has turned 17, and is just months away from leaving home for college. Lucy's imminent departure is the springboard for Almost Gone, a funny and deeply moving look at fathers and daughters, modern-day parenting and learning how to let go.
