全球性的文化和商業交流下,香港這個有七百萬人口的國際都市,正經歷著土地矛盾,人口流動,階級衝突,環境變遷等等問題。而這些問題背後,社會範式在衝撞中重組,社會心理在焦灼中改變,這座城市在時間的浪潮中緩緩變遷。資本主義體系下,全球化與城市化的浪潮中,我們可曾反思,究竟何謂之「城」?電影從自然與地緣政治入手,用電影語言,從感官入手,重新敘述香港這座城。

Hong Kong and its unique urban geography – gleaming skyscrapers, expansive malls, overpopulated housing estates – is given stirring focus in this rhythmic, politicallycharged documentary. Beginning and ending elliptically in a shopping center, Many Undulating Things finds poetry in motion, from the droning whir of escalators, through water flowing from artificial fountains, and onwards to the bustle of people navigating busy streets. Filmmakers Bo Wang and Pan Lu play with form, image and sound to make connections between Hong Kong’s ever-changing topography, its colonial past and its contentious future. What emerges is a document of a place and a people swinging endlessly between East and West, pushed forward by globalization and capitalism, compelled to transform itself again and again.
