Global Home

As soon as filmmaker Eva Stotz found out about the Couchsurfing network, she had to know more. What was this online community providing a free place to sleep anywhere in the world, a chance look in on the lives of complete strangers, and an opportunity to reach out beyond the internet after only a few emails? Eva packed her camera and set off on her travels. How does a Tuareg man in Mali use new media? What took a British environmental activist to the West Bank and what is a Brazilian dancer doing out in provincial Turkey? How is a Japanese teacher helping kids in Tokyo to discover their natural surroundings? And who is this person in San Francisco who started up Couchsurfing? GLOBAL HOME tells the fascinating stories of those who see globalization and the internet as an opportunity to meaningfully connect and interact more with others. A travel film that will make you want to experience for yourself this unexpected side of the digital world.
