A found-footage film like none that has come before. 'Present.Perfect' is made up of livestreams found online and collected by director Shengze Zhu. The streams' subjects, self-titled 'anchors', openly discuss their private and inner lives: a factory worker babbles on about her job, or a trans woman reveals that streams helped her break free from isolation. They create a bond with their followers: questions are answered, dares are executed. Remarkably, the majority of anchors have had a rough time in life but are still seen smiling through it all. A film that is equally innovative as heart-warming.
