After watching this documentary from Journeyman Pictures, I don’t think I can ever justify complaining about my living conditions ever again.

Produced in February 2010, this documentary shows a part of Hong Kong that most people hardly ever see — the private homes of some of Hong Kong’s poorest residents. The poorest of these live a life in cages no bigger than a dog kennel, with all of their belongings stuffed inside and just about everything else shared among a multitude of other cage dwellers.

One level up from that (but still extremely poor) are those who live in what the Hong Kong government calls “cubicle homes”, a space not normally bigger than a king-sized bed with incredibly low ceilings.

So sad to see such poor people living right under the noses of some of the world’s richest folks.
