Barack Obama was impressed enough with Bing Liu’s documentary to include it in his list of favourite films for 2018. An impressive directorial debut, the Oscar-nominated film profits from its intimacy, tracking the impact of recession on the lives of the boys and their families, as well as recording their progression towards adulthood. In his quest to understand why he and his friends all ran away from home when they were younger, Bing follows 23-year-old Zack as he becomes a father and 17-year-old Keire as he gets his first job. As the film unfolds, Bing is thrust into the middle of Zack’s tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend and Keire’s inner struggles with racial identity and his deceased father. While navigating a complex relationship between his camera and his friends, Bing explores the gap between fathers and sons. ★★★★★ "A profound study of youth, adulthood and the space in between" - Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
