72 Hours is a documentary film about awareness of how a segment of society lives. Dan Parks walks in the shoes of the vehicular homeless so that the audience can feel their burden. Who's responsibility is it to help? Can pressure make diamonds, or does it only crush the little hope we have left?
About The Project
After learning that the vehicular homeless in LA have to move every 3 days, Dan Parks sets out to live in an RV for 72 Hours at a time.
The vehicular homeless can only live in designated parts of LA, during specific times, and for only 72 hours at a time. The L.A. Times estimates that only 10% of city streets are zoned for vehicle dwelling. And that doesn't necessarliy mean car dwellers can park there. Some have red curbs or are in dangerously isolated industrial areas.
Dan Parks works to score an RV and live in it in different parts of the city for 72 hour blocks of time.
Where will he be treated as a human being? Who will see him as a nuisance to be hauled away?
