Sometimes I copy-paste dialogues from Netflix into my life, I call that the "Netflix–ication of Life".
The eccentric casting director Preston (Preston Chaunsumlit) and his roommate, the overly empathic vocal coach Sage (Colin Self), are renting their tiny New York apartment to guests from abroad (Vera von Lehndorff, Brigitte Hobmeier, Franz Rogowski) who are seeking to 'sublet' a new lifestyle.


Produced by the Münchner Kammerspiele and ZDF in cooperation with ARTE Creative. Supported by ARRI.

Exhibition view WELT AM DRAHT, Julia Stoschek Collection Berlin, 2016
