This short documentary explores life inside Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. The city resulted from a legal dispute between British-controlled Hong Kong and China. The conflict led to an area that was under neither of the two government’s jurisdiction. Makeshift homes were cramped into this city, which became ever denser, ultimately becoming the densest city that ever existed on Earth. The episode is part of an ongoing web series.
