Advantageous (Jennifer Phang, 2015)

Advantageous is set in a near future plagued by the effects of both increasing unemployment and gender inequality. Noted not only for its use of an Asian American female protagonist, the film uses the genre of science fiction to consider themes of the body, embodiment, and desire.
