Atlanta Premiere of "One Couch at a Time" full length feature documentary
Please join us for Atlanta's first screening of "One Couch at a Time". Producer, Jean-Michel Werk will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.
EntrepreneuREEL presents: "One Couch at a Time", the first full-length feature documentary on the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging "age of sharing" we are entering. The film follows protagonist and veteran CouchSurfer, Alexandra Liss, through 21 countries, 6 subcontinents, for 7 months using CouchSurfing.org. As we explore our inner and societal limits, this film pushes us to ask ourselves and our peers "what would YOU be willing to share with a stranger?"
CouchSurfing is a planet in this "sharing economy" galaxy- and the platform for which this entire film takes place. Alexandra also explores crowd funding, co-working, ridesharing, and gifting at the ultimate sharing society - Burningman! We focus, however, on the micro by capturing the magical, heart-warming, serendipitous exchanges that occur one couch at a time.
Each host and traveler along the way provide unique experiences becoming sub-subjects illustrating the incredible exchange. Alexandra, who begins her journey full of confusion, ends up learning lessons of a lifetime with the help of a few worldly friends.
We learn, that by embracing the "age of sharing" mentality is to have access to methods which make the pursuit of your passions and dreams merely a couch away. Featured interviews include sharing economy expert Rachel Botsman, founder of Burning Man Larry Harvey, sacred economist Charles Eisenstein, and of course, the founder of Couchsurfing, Casey Fenton.
