If there’s a great story to tell about an amazing city like Shanghai, media artist JT Singh will show us the real side of it.
Titled “Shanghai Forever,” the short film gives viewers a glimpse of what it’s like living as ordinary people in the world’s most expensive city for rich Asians.
The dizzying transitions give off a roller coaster ride vibe, resulting in a condensed, three-minute spectacle of Shanghai’s urban everyday life.
People are seen doing all sorts of activities in the film such as cooking, cleaning, working and playing games and musical instruments — there are even a few animal cameos too.JT Singh
NYC-based architect Lane Rick gave his take on the project:
“With JT’s riveting visual storytelling, viewers experience a series of impressions around historic shikkumen neighbourhoods, which foster a network of real-life experiences, memories, and encounters with locals, which are the tender heart keeping the city alive and charming to live in.”
