Storyline

The Superhost follows Preston (Preston Chaunsumlit) and his roommate Sage (Colin Self) as they try to figure out rent, rapport and cold hard reality in downtown New York. The show tallies the cost of social capital both on and off screen as Preston feels the effects of freelance fatigue. Every aspect of his life feels outsourced, underrated or overdue for an update. He's a guest on the show of his own life under peer-to-peer pressure to perform: livestream or die trying. Precarious cloud worker gig gags aside, the film examines the impact of the sharing economy on individuals forced to compartmentalise and commodify every aspect of the self. As contemporary technology disrupts our definition of property and currency, where does that leave us? Can we ever switch off? Or are we all being left eternally on 'seen'? Written by Ella Plevin
