Skype Q&A with Producer Diane Quon

Drawing on more than a decade of documentary footage, Minding The Gap tells the story of a friendship between three young men who have bonded to escape volatile families in their Rust Belt hometown.  As they face adult responsibilities, unexpected revelations threaten their decade-long friendship.

Welcome to Rockford, Illinois, in the heart of Rust-Belt America, home to debut filmmaker Bing Liu. With over 12 years of footage, Bing discovers connections between two of his skateboarder friends' volatile upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity. As the film unfolds, Bing captures 23-year-old Zack’s tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend deteriorate after the birth of their son and 17-year-old Keire struggling with his racial identity as he faces new responsibilities following the death of his father. While 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. (USA, 93 min., 2017, Director: Bing Liu)
