Welcome to Tech Farm, a Swedish co-living start-up created to inspire its young tenants to run their entire lives like a business enterprise. Firm believers in the idea that if you have a smartphone and a computer, you can run a major company from your pocket, residents put their entrepreneurial mindset to the test as they adopt a lifestyle of non-stop networking and self-management. Crammed into pods so tiny they can only be captured using headcams and 3D models, they apply economic principles to their personhood. 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
