The video begins with a shot of the sky above Central, then slowly moves downwards onto the heart of the business district. The rising sea has flooded all the streets– Pedder Street, Des Voeux Road, The Landmark Mall, Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and Jardine House are all under water!
Director Jervis SUEN says, “Global warming is approaching! When I saw how the polar bears got drowned on television, I just knew how devastating the situation is. I made use of just the most ‘minimal’ concept to bring the issue of global warming into focus.” The ifva award winner Jervis SUEN created this 3G animation to convey a warning to the world: If we do not stop global warming, Hong Kong will one day sink beneath the sea.
