Synopsis

Live-streaming in China is a billion-dollar industry driven by everyday citizens hosting online shows and interacting with virtual audiences. Compiled from more than 800 hours of footage from marginalized streamers—a burn victim, a street dancer, a factory worker, and many others—Present.Perfect. crafts a revealing portrait of a community searching for human connection in a society that has left them behind.

“The film raises important questions about the politics of viewership, the documentary form’s complex ties to reality and about human relationships in a digitally connected world.”
