Parkway Drive: Home is for the Heartless
Guest reporter Tegan says this documentary DVD is more than just a movie about a band.
This 75-minute feature film gives viewers the chance to dwell on the lives of well-known Australian band Parkway Drive, both on and off stage.
Hailing from Byron Bay New South Wales, these boys know a lot about fun. So what happens when they go on tour? What do they experience? How do they feel? What stories do they live to tell? I bet you’re wondering.
Well, all of those questions and more are answered in this unique and captivating travelogue as the story of what goes on behind the scenes of their tours unfolds.
The emotionally captivating, raw storyline of Home is for the Heartless enables viewers to see that the boys of Parkway Drive are really no different to you and I.
The way that the documentary is shot allows viewers to grasp the fact that the Parkway Drivers really are just a bunch of down-to-earth guys who connect with the world wholly through their music. They experience the same things that we do, the difference being that while they experience these things on tour.
Shot in 42 countries on five different continents, Home is for the Heartless is a rare travelogue (not for those who are easily upset) that showcases the emotions that Parkway Drive goes through while touring through all different circumstances and locations.
The doco is shot in a way that really allows an audience to connect with the band on a deep, personal, emotional level.
This unique travelogue captures everything that happens to the band on a day-to-day basis and really shows how the boys communicate with each other, with their fans and with everything and everyone else that surrounds them.
Parkway Drive has really tried to make this film much more unique and personal than their previous DVD release, Parkway Drive: The DVD, and has succeeded in doing so.
In addition to the footage captured at some of their craziest shows, this film also captures some of their greatest adventures. Travelling to some third-world cities that have never been touched by an international band really shows how Parkway Drive connects with their surroundings.
This film is more than just a film about a band. It’s about the untold power that their music holds and its ability to connect with the world.
