Minding The Gap - (Documentary) 2018, Hulu

I just heard about this documentary in a "Best of Summer Movie Awards" podcast. The documentary is available to watch now on Hulu. The elevator pitch is "Skateboarding Hoop Dreams", because it follows a group of skateboarding kids over many years. But it's so much more than that. And it's very moving in parts. I really liked it and certainly wouldn't have known about it if I hadn't heard the podcast -- Hulu does such a terrible job of properly highlighting their stuff. Searching here, there doesn't seem to be any discussion of it (Sorry if I missed it somewhere) Anyway, I highly recommend watching it if you have the service.



Compiling over 12 years of footage shot in his hometown of Rockford, IL, in MINDING THE GAP, Bing Liu searches for correlations between his skateboarder friends’ turbulent upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity. Liu weaves a story of generational forgiveness while exploring the precarious gap between childhood and adulthood. The film is produced by Liu and Diane Quon, and edited by Liu and Joshua Altman.

Bumping this. It's a really good documentary and I hope somebody here gets a chance to check it out this weekend.

We screened this at a film festival I work for. Here's the Q&A:



I don't have time to watch the whole thing now, but see if they mention a special guest who just happened to attend this screening...

to the LA Film Critics Awards who made Minding The Gap not only the Runner Up for Best Documentary ( Shirkers won), but awarded it Best Editing as well.

This looks pretty good. Will definitely give it a view soon.


I suggest following it by watching "Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine," which is also on Hulu.
