Landing a job at the Corner Parking Lot is no easy feat. Bossman Chris Farina empowers employees as de facto owners, creating a work environment that privileges workers over customers. The ragtag crew of misfits he’s assembled contemplate existentialist and misanthropic deep thoughts while setting parking brakes. The car jockeys give equal time to brain-teasers, time-wasters, and the finer points of morality. Park and you will be judged! Your good or evil based on the make, model, and licence plate of your ride. A hilarious indictment of capitalism, class politics, and car culture. - Angie Driscoll
The Parking Lot Movie also screens as part of Hot Docs' new Rooftop Docs Series on Thursday, May 6, on the top outdoor tier of Citipark Cumberland Parking Garage. Enjoy live music, bar service courtesy of Steamwhistle, free popcorn from Whole Foods and fantastic docs under the stars.
