'What I had experienced somebody actually cares about': Minding the Gap's Bing Liu on sharing stories of abuse
Originally published on February 14, 2019
Bing Liu's Oscar-nominated documentary Minding the Gap takes a raw and honest look at domestic violence and child abuse in small town America. It follows a group of young skateboarders using more than 12 years of footage Liu shot to reveal the hidden truth they all have in common and how the violence they suffered has affected them now in adulthood.
Liu's debut feature film has been turning heads at screenings all around the world ever since its premiere at Sundance last year. Ahead of his big night at the Oscars at the end of this month, Liu joined guest host Laurie Brown from Los Angeles to take us deeper into his critically-acclaimed and highly personal film.
Minding the Gap is playing in Toronto on Sunday, Feb. 17 as a part of the TIFF: Next Wave festival. You can also catch it on PBS on Monday, Feb. 18.
