The Bricks addresses a nation's collective trauma and how it has been the barrier to sustained peace.

With 75% of production complete, we're on the home-stretch of what we need to film. We plan to film the formation of government in November, the preceeding peace talks, and potential high-level interviews that would really give the film a powerful voice. The film is slated for a final cut completion this winter.
