SWIFF 2018: MINDING THE GAP

SWIFF PRESENTS SWIFF 2018: MINDING THE GAP

For three young men growing up in Illinois, adulthood and the responsibilities that come with it are quickly approaching. After the carefree summers of their adolescence spent skateboarding around Rockford, the stressors of fatherhood, money, racial tensions, domestic abuse and more start to threaten their decade-long friendship. Filmmaker Bing Liu returns home to reconnect with his two friends, bringing with him footage shot over the course of the last 10 years. Through this personal footage and present-day interviews, Minding the Gap offers a vulnerable and powerfully honest look at the many struggles of growing up and the difficulties of moving forward from heavy pasts into uncertain futures. - Gabor Pertic

 

100% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes

 

"Minding the Gap is a personal documentary of the highest sort, in which the film's necessity to the filmmaker-and its obstacles, its resistances, its emotional and moral demands on him are part of its very existence. Richard Brody, The New Yorker


"The emotional intelligence Liu, Keire, and Zack demonstrate in their moments of self-analysis is what leaves Minding the Gap ending with something a lot like hope."  --Sophie Gilbert, The Atlantic
