Minding the Gap
Growing up
Bing Liu

Using over 12 years of footage spanning through their adolescence, Bing Liu discovers connections between two of his skateboarder friends' volatile upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity. He 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 arrives to a point where he must shift his role as a narrator to that of a protagonist.
