Dangerous Parking
Filmfest 2008

Based on the book by Stuart Browne (published in 1999), this largely autobiographical story follows a cult director in the indie film world. His life is on a crash course steering towards his own destruction. His life is one of success - and excess. Everything - drink, drugs, girls, fame - that he can get hands on he wolfs down with an insatiable hunger. But he is running towards a brick wall - alcoholism and drug addiction have him firmly in their grasp - but he has no interest in acknowledging either until Kirstin, a young alcoholic who has 'seen the light', manages to convince him that he is heading for destruction and sets him on the path to reclaim himself. With the help of his best friend he attempts to right his ship - and when fate sends him a guardian angel in the shape of cellist Clare Mattheson, he tries even harder to shift his focus from self-abuse to self-preservation - and on the road to selflessness ... and that is when Mother Nature deals him the cruellest blow of all. “A rebel yell from deep within the soul of a man.” Peter Howitt
