Minding the Gap

Bing Liu, 98 min

United States, 2018

Minding the Gap

From skateboard video to documentary 'Boyhood'. Three young friends grow up, become young men and make life choices in front of rolling cameras.

What starts off as a skateboard video turns into a documentary 'Boyhood' over several years while three teenagers grow up and become young men, and one of them films it all as it happens. Freedom makes way for responsibility and adulthood makes itself known. We are in Rickford, Illinois – in the heart of the American rust belt – where Zack, Keire and Bing kill time skating around the city and partying. The deep friendship of the small trio is the core of Bing Lui's formidable debut and Sundance hit where every choice in life, both the right and wrong ones, closes one door and opens a new one. For even though their friends feel more like a family than their own families, all three of them have their own demons to fight with on the home front. Fathers die, others become fathers without wanting to, and the years go by and more doors close behind them. 'Minding the Gap' is a film created with youthful energy, but with an impressive level of maturity and insight. Bing Liu will not be one of the great filmmakers in the future. He already is one.
