Made over the course of 12 years, the Oscar-nominated documentary Minding the Gap follows first-time director Bing Liu as he discovers connections between two of his skateboarder friends’ volatile upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity. Navigating a difficult relationship between his camera and his friends, Bing weaves a story of generational forgiveness while exploring the precarious gap between childhood and adulthood. “Liu’s confrontation with abuse and trauma … is an essentially and crucially political act” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker). Contains mature content, including strong language, violence, and drug references.
