Documentary filmed in 1988 about the Kowloon Walled City by an Austrian camera team, with English subtitles. I took it upon myself to re-sub the original video as best as possible, the original version is hard-subbed on a version of this film with very poor quality, the subs are also worded incorrectly in some places. So all I've done I re-subbed the whole thing and put it onto a better quality video clip.
The peculiar case of a 14-story slum in Hong Kong. Not kidding.

The day to day life of people in Kowloon, Hong Kong traffic midday!
This is an old 1970's RTHK TV short programme on the life in the Walled City of Kowloon, Hong Kong. Demolished in the early 90's, the city was the site of once one of the most densest population in the world. 33,000 people lived in 300+ 14 storey ramshackled buildings packed into about a 7.5 acre area. Crime and illegal factories were certainly there, but everyday working people also inhabited the city. You can see the maze of passageways. All the buildings were walk-ups, as there were only 2 or 3 elevators in the entire city. Some of the buildings were 14 storeys tall. In the film, it show how close the buildings are to each other. "Handshaking" buildings they were called. The neighbour wants to use his iron and just passes his electric cord through the window to the ne...
Alan Wicker enters the Kowloon Walled City and is taken on a tour by Australian Ted Brown, and also visits the drug rehabilitation center ran by Jackie Pullinger and her team of friends, there is also an interview with Jackie Pullinger and her stories she has to tell. The first part of the video is maybe more interesting as it's actually based in the walled city; on the tour with Ted Brown(the Aussie) and when interviewing the two girls, the other part is an interview with Jackie Pullinger. They do seem very keen on their work on helping druggies, but even I myself think they aren't very down to earth, Alan Wicker does well to keep the interviews going. Surely when he's interviewing the girl called Anne he asks her how she gets her food seeing as they don't earn any money as the work is ...

The city, a unique urban experiment, housed about 50,000 people in just 300 buildings, which were crammed together into a living space that followed its own set of laws. Governed by the Chinese mafia known as 'the Triads', the city became famous in the 1980s for its brothels, casinos and opium dens. Living conditions were squalid, with cramped and dirty spaces, no direct sunlight, patchy or n...
What if everybody in the world, all 7.4 billion of us all lived together in the same city? How big or small would this city have to be and how close together or far apart would we all be living from each other? This video explores those concepts and visualizes what a massive global city would look like were it to ever exist in the real world. Huge thanks to Ross Bugden for the excellent music, link below!
