Hong Kong Rain
Most of us like to curl up with a hot drink and a good book when the heavens open in Hong Kong (especially when the typhoons hit), but for Italian filmmaker Raffaele Mosca
, there's no better time to get outside and be creative.
Sheltering under a storefront waiting for the rain to stop during a typical downpour, he finds beauty in the ordinary among the back streets of Causeway Bay in his atmospheric video, Hong Kong Rain
With a sense of tension and foreboding, and the presence of towering grey architecture, you could almost mistake this as footage from a film.
"The city looks like a film set and the rain just adds to the magic," he tells us. "I'm not a Hong Kong resident and was staying in the city for ten days as part of an Asian journey that started five months ago.
"Filming is a way for me to learn more about the place I'm in, and I was actually discovering things in this video which I shot in one hour. I love Hong Kong, it's like a mini world."
We're waiting for the credits to roll! Stay dry, people.
