Human Architecture Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by Karim Shaaban 2019

“Cities breathe. They are as alive and individualistic as people. They change from heaviness to lightness and lightness to heaviness in the speed of thought and bring out different sides of inhabitants to the surface.

They are life set in concrete, listen closely and you will hear them sigh.

Through the film, I wanted to make a visual comparison between lightness and heaviness. I travelled to Iceland and Hong Kong trying to visually understand what does it mean to be heavy and busy and compare it to emptiness and lightness.”

Cities are People.
Some are older than sin.
Others are insecure,
And fickle adolescents
Learning which roads to cross.
No road signs anywhere,
Just streets stretching ahead
Like millions of veins to
Keep us going to wherever
Home is.
