A Parked Life

Director: Peter Triest
Hypnotising documentary road movie in which a Bulgarian truck driver sees the cracks in Europe through his windscreen and the cracks in his marriage on his phone screen.
The Bulgarian driver Petar Doychev lives in the cabin of his truck for months in a row. And there are many people like Petar, because hundreds of thousands of East European men haul their cargos all over the European motorway grid. Always on the road, nowhere at home. For Petar, this tough life leads to the disintegration of the ties with his wife and child. This intimate portrait of an asphalt nomad on the edge of the consumer society takes us on a trip to all the (far) corners of the continent.
