DFF 2018 Minding the Gap Friday, November 2nd 2pm MPOH
Minding the Gap will be screening at the ninth annual Driftless Film Festival on Friday, November 2nd at 2pm at the Mineral Point Opera House. Tickets for this film are $10.
First-time filmmaker Bing Lius documentary Minding the Gap is a coming-of-age saga of three skateboarding friends in their Rust Belt hometown hit hard by decades of recession. In his quest to understand why he and his friends all ran away from home when they were younger, Bing follows 23-year-old Zack as he becomes a father and 17-year-old Keire as he gets his first job. As the film unfolds, Bing is thrust into the middle of Zacks tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend and Keires inner struggles with racial identity and his deceased father. While navigating a complex relationship between his camera and his friends, Bing explores the gap between fathers and sons, between discipline and domestic abuse, and ultimately that precarious chasm between childhood and becoming an adult.
