ABOUT THE FILM

Minding the Gap follows a group of skateboarders as they struggle with their relationships with their families. Bing, a 24-year-old skateboarder and filmmaker, returns to his hometown and reconnects with two boys he used to film over a decade ago: 17-year-old Keire and 23-year-old Zack. Bing’s obsessive investigation of trauma in their childhood homes culminates in him confronting his own estranged mother and half-brother. Over the next three years, as Zack struggles with being a young father and Keire and Bing attempt to reconnect with their mothers, they unwittingly plummet over the biggest gap they've ever faced.

"I wanted to break the mold of media about skateboarders, which generally fall into categories of either shock portraits or sports narratives.
I wanted to tell a real

insider's story

of what it's like to grow up in an ignored population of one of the most
vulnerable and at-risk groups in the country. To reveal the beauty and the struggle of today's young lumpenproletariat while seeking answers about what happened to me in my own childhood."
