A Parked Life

A Parked Life

24th TDF: Greek Premiere

Money is the main reason for Petar to be a long-distance lorry driver: it can give his child a future. But as weeks and months go by, Petar feels his dreams slipping through his fingers. The world of highways, industrial zones, and parking lots is a hard place to stay sane. Distance and time cause his marriage to crumble, to the point that he is about to lose all contact with his son. An intimate portrait of one of the hundreds of thousands of Eastern European truck drivers that work in the west, offering at the same time a majestic view of the European continent, from the simmering deserts of Spain to the frozen north of Norway. At the same time, it offers a delicate observation of a man who feels disconnected and lost in this world.
