Minding The Gap (15)

Human Rights Watch Film Festival


Multi-award-winning documentary Minding the Gap tells the coming-of-age story of three young men, bonded by their love of skateboarding and desire to escape volatile family life. Created from over 12 years of footage intimately recorded with his tight-knit group of friends, filmmaker Bing Liu beautifully captures their shared wild energy and freedom, while simultaneously documenting the unique and lasting effects of turbulent childhoods, poverty and the complexities of modern-day masculinity. Set in a town with some of the highest rates of domestic abuse in the US, Minding the Gap grapples with questions around the impact on subsequent generations and the cycles of abuse. While navigating a relationship between his camera, his friends, and his own past, Liu weaves a story that is both rich and epic while remaining intimate and immersive. US Documentary Competition Jury Award for Breakthrough Filmmaking, Sundance, 20182019 Academy Award® Nominee for Best Documentary Feature

The Feeling of Being Watched (15)

Human Rights Watch Film Festival


Residents of Assia Boundaoui’s entire neighbourhood outside of Chicago, Illinois, have felt under government surveillance for over a decade. Returning home and recounting memories of her childhood suspicions, she visits her neighbours one by one, and a mass of personal accounts begin to pile up. Assia decides it’s time to set up her own investigation. Her inquiries soon yield tens of thousands of FBI documents proving that her Arab-American hometown was indeed the subject of one of the largest counterterrorism investigations ever conducted in the US pre-9/11. Creatively weaving the personal and political, The Feeling of Being Watched is Assia’s story, as she grapples with the enduring impact government surveillance has had on her country, community, and her own sense of identity.
