Minding the Gap

Thursday, September 27

Film Suburbs & Beyond

Three young men from troubled families (including director Bing Liu) find community and solace in the skateboarding scene of their declining Rust Belt town. Facing the challenges of adult life, each grapples with past traumas and strives to find their place in the world. Steve James (Hoop Dreams) produced this urgently contemporary–yet entirely universal–coming-of-age story about maturity, masculinity, and class in modern America.  

Director Bing Liu will join us for a post-film Q&A via Skype.

(NR) USA – 1 hr 33 min
2018 · d. Bing Liu
