synopsis
An obsessive writer discovers a new form of communication when she finds out her annoying new neighbor is the source of her inspiration. "Writer's Block" is a 13 minute short film that tells the story of relationships and tolerance in a crowded New York apartment building. It was inspired by the idea of this tacit and close relationship people have with their neighbors through the walls and floors of their apartments, even when they don't know each other.
