Feng Shui: Living In Harmony   Leave a comment

Feng shui, literally translated from the Chinese, means “wind, water” and traditionally symbolizes the space between heaven and earth the environment where we live.

The philosophy of Chinese geomancy recognizes that house and garden should work together relative to life, health, wealth and happiness, helping one improve life by receiving positive qi. In Hong Kong, the capital of feng shui, the ancient knowledge survived the Cultural Revolution that swept over Mainland China during the 60s and 70s.

This film looks at the roots of feng shui with masters demonstrating how the ancient Chinese science is still deeply rooted in the everyday lives of people living here. To the Chinese, feng shui is much more than simply a new trend in interior design. The influence feng shui has on their lifestyle and the mentality of Hong Kong people is told through comical, unusual and everyday stories. You will see an apartment building, in the Aberdeen quarter, that has 400 square meter hole in the front, so that the “mountain dragon” still has a view of the ocean.

Feng shui masters show us the positioning and the conception of the house, straight down to details about the interior design. They offer their expertise on the best positioning for the front door, the suitable color of the walls and floors, right up to the positioning of a desk.
