Got a chance to see the stellar Oscar nominated documentary ‘Minding the Gap’ about 3 skater friends that grow up in Rockford and how their lives evolve and intertwine over the years. Definitely rooting for this film! <3
You can see it streaming on PBS www.pov.org tomorrow Monday 2/18 at 9pm CST!
“This one is a keeper in all aspects…stylistically beautiful!” – Chicago Magazine
“It’s a very distinctive cinematic voice and I appreciate this unique vision and approach to the usual ‘frustrated housewife’ story. Stylistically it’s very original and bold, I really appreciated that.” – Ania at Visit Films
When pregnant housewife Edie Canody learns her father-in-law has passed away, she and her husband Benjamin return to a disquieting small town of Loves Park for the funeral. Edie is surprised when Benjamin mysteriously decides to stay and run his family’s business. Edie’s behavior soon becomes increasingly bizarre as more time spent in Loves Park is eerily drawn out against her wishes.
Listen to 104.9 The X Morning Show Interview with Director/Producer Carol Rhyu:
I wasn’t procrastinating. It was that I didn’t fixate anymore on how to make this ‘perfect’ because it became perfect by the unusual way it was conceived and my admission to its perfection, which has all the potentials contained within it past/present/future all here for me now in the way I imagined it would be. Beautiful.
Such loyalty, such compassion is offered to you in this moment. If we are devout and patient in our fulfillment, somehow everything is always already complete.
