THE PARK is an inspiring documentary about a neighborhood city park and how its existence affects the people who visit the park and the employees who work there. The story is set in a particular local big city park (to symbolize urban parks everywhere) and takes the audience on a journey inside this park and what it means to the people and its surrounding community.
The film’s director, motivated by an overwhelming sense of curiosity ventures out into his own local park with a small crew, (camera and sound man) to ask random park-goers, and park employees a series of questions. The film follows this myriad of people and employees as they speak onscreen of their attachments to this local park.
The result is an in-depth profile as presented through a series of candid interviews and anecdotes. It’s an inspiring, sentimental, yet humorous portrayal about life in a local big city park and how it makes a positive difference to a community.
