CINEMA START IN GERMANY: SPRING 2022
9 months / 9 countries / 53 couches
Christoph Pehofer took a journey through North America and Asia. Staying in hostels was a rare alternative. What he did instead was sleeping in complete strangers’ living rooms – Couchsurfing is the concept behind this.
His hosts not only gave him access to living environments, but also made new connections possible around the globe. Therefore, the main focus of the film is on the people which participate in Couchsurfing and their great diversity. His hosts couldn’t have been more different from one another: from a 21-year-old student in a student dorm, to a family in which three generations take part in Couchsurfing, to a nudist in Manhattan, a transgender in Bangkok and many more.
