This film depicts a geographical, architectural, and urban research study of a specific area in Shanghai. This area was chosen because it strongly resembles the Grand Palais area in Paris. From an emotional standpoint, the artist has a deep attachment to both cities, having lived in both for many years. On the more practical side, the film expresses concerns regarding the urbanization and globalization of Shanghai, elements of which have turned Shanghai into a science-fiction like landscape through the blending of pre-industrial and hypermodern elements. The images presented in this film are not meant to be viewed passively.
