Sunderland Film Club presents… Minding the Gap
Wednesday 24th April, 7pm, Tickets £5
Join us at Arts Centre Washington this April for a screening of Bing Liu’s Academy Award-nominated coming-of-age saga – Minding the Gap.
In his quest to understand why so many of his peers in the skateboarding community ran away from home when they were younger, Bing follows 23-year-old Zack as he becomes a father and 17-year-old Keire as he gets his first job.
As the story unfolds, Bing is thrust into the middle of Zack’s tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend and Keire’s inner struggles with racial identity and his deceased father. As we watch the boys grow up before our eyes, we experience the joy, sacrifice, and hope in the gap between childhood and adulthood.
Sunderland Film Club, Wearside’s documentary-focused community cinema, hosts monthly screenings, talks and workshops at Arts Centre Washington.
Sunderland Film Club is supported by Film Hub North with National Lottery funding on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network.
