‘Ghost in the Shell’ vs Hong Kong

I first watched Manga’s cult classic Ghost in the Shell when I was a teen but only recently realized that the film’s city background is actually based on Hong Kong – my current place of residence. When it was made in 1995, it depicted a grimy, futuristic city. Now, 16 years later, it’s interesting to see how Hong Kong has physically changed. So I set out to try and recreate particular scenes from the film.
