Welcome to Tech Farm, a Swedish co-living start-up that wants to blur the lines between leisure and labour. Its tenants are young, would-be entrepreneurs who are willing to devote every minute of their lives to achieve financial success. Eschewing privacy and comfort, they surround themselves with equally driven individuals, forming a neoliberal commune where everyone thinks alike. Sleeping in pods, brainstorming in the sauna, their entire existence revolves around their entrepreneurial ideology. With a gently critical approach, filmmakers Marta Dauliute and Viktorija Šiaulyte allow the tenants and the people behind the start-up to speak for themselves. They couch their words in once radical rhetoric of community and social justice. As they confuse their entrapment in the rat race with liberty, we are confronted with the way our own lives and spatial environments have been undermined by capitalism.
