Traces of an Invisible City: Three Notes on Hong Kong

Synopsis

Visualising the visible/invisible boundaries of socio-spatial stratifications, the film presents urban space in Hong Kong as a vivid showcase of the hidden logics of today’s world cities. The film contains three chapters—global, local, and border spaces—to illustrate the tension among their visual existence, function and ownership, and how the city’s public space has been constructed, used, owned, and interpreted.
