Hong Kong’s thriving film culture is a direct product of the physical reality of the city. As a built fabric under continuous transformation, Hong Kong’s urban spaces are comprised of a complex network of walking paths that emerge in the intersection between pedestrian infrastructure, public transport systems, and architecture. In a design research studio for graduate and undergraduate UVA students, film is employed to convey the experience of the walking human body as it moves through these spaces. Resulting from a one-week immersion into Hong Kong’s cityscape, this film series offers a poetic and critical reflection on Hong Kong’s unique spatial qualities. Discussion with the filmmakers, moderated by creative director Esther Lorenz (UVA)

Supported by School of Architecture, Center for Global Inquiry + Innovation, and UVA Arts Council
