CHUPAN CHUPAI by Factory Fifteen.
This teaser movie by architectural film studio Factory Fifteen offers a vision in a near future heavily influenced by the imminent boom of the Indian subcontinent, an emerging technology and economic superpower a new digital city has developed. The film follows a group of young children as they play a game of hide and seek (Chupan Chupai) in the bustling streets of this smart city. Through their play the children discover how to hack the city, opening up a cavernous network of hidden and forgotten spaces, behind the scenes of everyday streets.

Chupan Chupai in a 12-minute version for the Future Perfect exhibition was exhibit as part of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale in the Museu da Eletricidade from the 12th September until the 15th December. The Lisbon Architecture Triennale continues until 15 December.
