Deep in the heart of the American Rust Belt lies Rockford, Illinois. Growing up here, all you can look forward to is unemployment and poverty. But three high school friends find an outlet through skateboarding.

Language: English, Dutch subtitles
One of them, Bing Liu, films all their adventures. What he also captures is the abruptness with which they are catapulted into adulthood, with its dead-end jobs, babies, and reflections on what it actually means to be a man. Years later he returns to his hometown to find out what has happened to his friends.

NY TImes:

Minding the Gap is more than a celebration of skateboarding. With sensitivity, the director, Bing Liu, delves into some of the most painful and intimate details of his friends’ lives and his own”.
