The Parking Lot Movie – Poster and trailer
Posted by LiveFor on April 1, 2010
The Parking Lot Movie is a documentary about a singular parking lot in Charlottesville, Virginia and the select group of parking lot attendants that inhabit its microcosm. The attendants are a uniquely varied group of men comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, artists, musicians, intellectuals, philosophers and marginal-type characters.
A strange rite of passage for all involved everything from cars and license plates, class struggles, capitalism, anger, justice, drunkenness, and awareness receive daily scrutiny and detailing. For these denizens of Charlottesville, the intersection between the status quo and the quest for freedom becomes the challenge. Something as simple as a parking lot becomes an emotional weigh station for The American Dream. In the end, as one attendant interestingly puts it, We had it all in a world that had nothing to offer us.
