Event description

Description

As part of the Community, Arts and Resistance and Challenging Conversations series, the UC San Diego Institute of Arts and Humanities invites you to a special documentary film screening and discussion.


"Minding the Gap," a film by Bing Liu, follows three young men who bond across racial lines to escape volatile families in their hometown. Ten years later, unsettling revelations force them to reckon with their families and each other.


"Minding the Gap" won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Filmmaking at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.


Following the event will be a discussion about race, mental health, and community with Keire Johnson, one of the young men featured in the documentary.


Event is free and open to the public!

Please RSVP - Space is limited!
