For this week’s Movie Night, we will watch ONE WAY TICKET: The Digital Nomad Documentary. After that, there will be a discussion lead by filmmaker and Dojo member, Jonathan Sarno.
About the Documentary Movie
All it takes is a reliable internet connection and modern technology, people around the world are hitting the road combining work and travel to explore other cultures and ways of life. They realize they don’t need to pay high rent to be near their place of work, but also that there is no reason to spend the rest of their lives in the place they were born.
They work and live from anywhere they want, without limiting themselves to one location. As this new generation rises, companies and governments have also started to adopt new strategies. Is this the future of work or simply a form of neo-colonialism? Through interviews with advocates, academics and authorities, this film examines the issues surrounding the supposed “dream life”.
