SYNOPSIS

Three siblings, Martin (87) from Monaco, Theo (85) from Canada and Alessa (82) from USA narrate the fascinating true-life story of their father L.E.HUDEC (1893-1958), a famous architect in Shanghai. For the first time Alessa visits Slovakia, the birthplace of her father. Together with her brother Theo, they decide to visit China after 63 years – the country of their childhood and youth. This documentary not only explores many exciting details of the life of L.E. HUDEC, father of Asian high-rises, but also serves as an authentic testimony of life of Europeans and Americans in Colonial Shanghai. It presents the never-before-seen 16 mm home-movies that were shot between 1927 – 1938 by Ladislav HUDEC himself.
