I created this movie in order to illustrate the effects the octopus card has on Hong Kong and its inhabitants. The Octopus Card is extremely flexible, it can be used for identification, credit, debit, security clearance, transportation, food, etc. The shopper who is the focus of the second part of the film is Sonia Mak, a fellow graduate of the University of Florida School of Architecture and a Hong Kong resident. The music contains excerpts from: "6IE.CR" by Autechre and "Motion Picture Soundtrack" by Radiohead.
