Good Life follows a group of young people at Tech Farm, a co-living start-up in central Stockholm. Here, select entrepreneurs can rent a “sleeping pod” and become part of a lifestyle of nonstop networking and self-management. In a time when we are all expected to be in a constant mode of self-promotion and self-realization, Good Life is a deep look at how the entrepreneurial ideology affects us. What happens when a corporate narrative becomes part of your inner self and community becomes a business model?
“How is it that this new generation of workers, who label themselves brand ambassadors and founders, perceive their spatial confinement and limited economic conditions in terms of opportunity and empowerment? Dense with contradictions, Good Life asks viewers to decide for themselves whether they see through, or see themselves, in this entrepreneurial ideology as identity, and what it all has to do with the future of work, living standards and capitalism.” Angie Driscoll, Hot Docs
