Hogs to Host Local Filmmakers of Oscar-Nominated Documentary "Minding the Gap"
ROCKFORD, Ill. - As part of the their "Our Town, Our Team" campaign, the Rockford IceHogs are hosting the local filmmakers of the Oscar-nominated "Minding the Gap" documentary at the team's regular-season home finale on Sunday, April 14 at 6 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center.
Minding the Gap is a 2018 documentary film directed by Rockford native, Bing Liu. The film documents the lives and friendships of three young men growing up in Rockford who bonded together over skateboarding to escape their volatile families. The documentary received critical acclaim, winning the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival, and was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 91st Academy Awards.
The IceHogs will host the filmmakers of Minding the Gap - three Rockford natives Keire Johnson, Liu and Zack Mulligan - for the team's home game on Sunday, April 14 against the Milwaukee Admirals. The Hogs will present Johnson, Liu and Mulligan with a donation to benefit the local charity, "Remedies Renewing Lives." The charity is a 501c3 which provides critical services for domestic violence and substance abuse to Boone and Winnebago Counties.
