What Eats The Soul

Watch What Eats The Soul by Eddie Ng

A short film calling attention to the extreme living conditions the poor are forced to accept in Hong Kong and the extreme relative cost of poverty. Directed by Eddie Ng.

Today, thousands of people in Hong King still live in “cage houses” that are no more than 15 square feet. In a small apartment, as many as 20 cages are packed up to 3 levels high. Rent for each cage is as high as $200 (USD) per month. Its per-square-foot rent is on par with luxury flats in Hong Kong.
