D: Ladislav Kabos

This inspiring documentary not only explores the many exciting details of the life of L. E. Hudec, father of Asian high-rises, through the authentic experiences of Hudec’s children but also presents the never-before-seen 16mm films that were shot between 1927-1938 by Ladislav Hudec himself. The film opens a window to the previously unknown life of Europeans and Americans in Colonial Shanghai before the People’s Republic of China was formed.
