The Man Who Changed Shanghai

L E Hudac. That who is The Man Who Changed Shanghai.We get to meet him through his three children and footage that he himself shot back in the day. He had quite the life, born in Slovakia, but considered himself more Hungarian. After experiencing war in Russia, he made his way to Shanghai, and continued his career in architecture.

We see a few buildings, but not many. Mainly it's about the children's memories of their father and their childhood, which is an interesting look in itself into the life style of white people in China. They had quite the luxurious life.

It's a nice examination of one person of note.
