"One Couch at a Time", a full length feature documentary following protagonist and veteran CouchSurfer, Alexandra Liss, through 20 countries, 5 subcontinents, for 6 months using CouchSurfing.org as a benefit of utilizing access over ownership.
CouchSurfing is a planet in this "sharing economy" galaxy- and the platform for which this entire filmtakes 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.
Contrary to mainstream opinion, 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. Featuring Sharing economy expert, Rachel Botsman, author and efficiency guru, Tim Ferriss, founder of Burningman Larry Harvey, and of course, the founder of Couchsurfing, Casey Fenton.
The film begins in SE Asia, then Southern Africa, Western Europe, Australia, South America and climaxes at Burningman, the ultimate gift society!
So, what would YOU share with a stranger?
