About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Sundance Film Festival

Years into a benevolent alien occupation, mankind is still adjusting to its new overlords. Their technology initially held promise for global prosperity, but rendered most human jobs – and steady income – obsolete. When two teenagers discover the aliens are fascinated with human love and will pay for access to it, they decide to livestream their romance to make extra cash for their families. Based on the acclaimed 2017 novel by M. T. Anderson.

“set to be a cult classic… a cutting satire about economic imperialism, the commodification of culture, and the degrees to which human beings are forced to debase themselves in order to survive.”

—Dylan Roth, Observer
