Minding the Gap
A gripping coming-of-age story from the US working class.
This award-winning and exceptional documentary brings us right into the lives of a group of friends at the threshold of adulthood- and the director is one of them. Through several years we see how the experiences from their own childhood in a poor American city shape them as humans.
In a circle of violent, alcoholic and distant parents, what role models do they look to, to not reproduce the same mistakes? The documentary provides us with a unique insight into what shape our identity and our choices, and makes us deeply engaged in the choices these friends are required to make.
The documentary is short-listed for the Oscar for best documentary.
