The Corner Parking Lot is located in Charlottesville, VA, in an area near a number of bars, businesses, and student hangouts. Given its location, the lot is often busy and attracts a diverse clientele. The owner of the lot, Chris Farina, likes to keep things lively at The Corner by hiring an interesting mix of people -- graduate students, musicians, artists, philosophers (either studied or self-taught), and bohemians with their own take on life. Filmmaker Meghan Eckman was friendly with someone who worked at the Corner and thought it would be a good subject for a film; she spent three years interviewing the employees and watching them interact with customers when not killing time in the booth. The result was The Parking Lot Movie, a documentary that chronicles the thoughts of some creative minds working in the shallow end of the economic system as they discuss their lives and careers, their attitudes about the customers, what you can tell about someone from their car, and things they've learned about human nature from working a job most people never think about. The Parking Lot Movie received its world premiere at the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival.
