Cornerstone Arts Week brings Bing Liu and Diane Quon for a screening and discussion on Minding the Gap
Bing Liu and Diane Quon present a screening and discussion called “Minding the Gap.” The film chronicles the lives and friendships of three young men growing up in Rockford, Illinois, united by their love of skateboarding. The film has earned over 50 award recognitions, including an Academy Award nomination, since its premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, where it took home the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Filmmaking. A.O. Scott of the New York Times called it an "astonishing debut feature" and "a rich, devastating essay on race, class, and manhood in 21st-century America."
Bing Liu is a 30-year-old Chicago-based director and cinematographer. “Minding the Gap” is his first feature. Diane Quon currently produces documentaries for Chicago’s Kartemquin Films after a long career as a marketing executive at Paramount Pictures. Quon is a 2017/2018 Film Independent Fellow, a 2019 IFP Cannes Producer Fellow, and a 2019 Sundance Creative Producing Fellow.
