Local production company Visual Suspect has released another thought-provoking take on Hong Kong. Their new clip, Pandemia, takes aim at the city’s mobile phone addiction, using real shots of Hongkongers locked into their devices in public.
The producers say the video is a commentary on “the messaging and infinitive social media scrolling – people are multitasking from games, to the stock market, watching movies in between… all of this while even crossing a street.”
“While it has been shot in Hong Kong, we believe the subject is global,” Visual Suspect told Hong Wrong.
