My favorite film from the 2018 Sundance Film Fesitival is a beautiful little film called Minding the Gap, a personal piece of confessional cinematic space by Bing Liu. I’m so happy to see that, after an award winning festival run, it will be coming to theaters in August, and you’ll be able too see it on Hulu after that. I can’t recommend it enough.
“What makes Minding the Gap so powerful and intimate is the presence of Liu, who uses his past connections to dive into his own family experience, confronting his mother and brother as the filmmaker breaks the third wall, revealing why he’s returned and documenting the process of healing. Setting itself apart from other rough and ready documentaries about lost youth coming into their own, the creative forces behind the lens slowly immerse us in the drama that happens once everyone leaves the skate park.”
