‘Parked’ success at Mannheim-Heidelberg Film Festival

Colm Meaney in Parked

Darragh Byrne’s Parked took the top prize at the Mannheim-Heidelberg Film Festival, a festival dedicated to up and coming new directors. The jury was ‘very much moved by the mastery of storytelling of a first time director about the unexpected friendship of two opposite characters. In a subtle way the narrative unfolds underestimated values of marginalized people in a bureaucratic society that increasingly fails to recover and maintain human dignity,’ according to festival organizers.
