Faced with the highest property prices in the world, half of Hong Kong’s population of 7 million live in densely-populated high-rise public housing estates.
In his newest production “Homeland”, filmmaker Patrick Cheung captures a dazzling time-lapse of daily life and scenic views from these estates, juxtaposed with the city’s famous markets and temples.
Scenes were filmed in Yuen Long in the north, the working-class residential area of Wong Tai Sin, and the bustling district of Yau Ma Tei, among other locations.
“The people [who] live under the Lion Rock need to keep moving on,” writes Cheung.
