A building is a volume of human history, holding within its pages the stories and secrets of generations past and present. Building 173 in downtown Shanghai has witnessed three quarters of a century of the most dramatic upheaval in modern Chinese history. Its residents tell an intimate tale of how these violent changes have altered the course of their lives.
Building 173 is a documentary about the building and its residents, but also the history of Shanghai during that time. 1 building, 7 people, 3 generations.
I designed the website and the animations of old images that was used in the movie.
