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 recognizes that house and garden should work together relative to life, health, wealth and happiness. 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 them 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.

    To the narrator: It is not pronounced "Fung Shoe-ee" like Hong Kong Fooey. It is pronounced "Feng Shway".

    I know, wouldn't you think he would have figured that out after hearing the masters pronounce it properly? Arrogance of the Western world do you think?

  3. Karl Jacobs

    It's pronounced correctly, in the Cantonese dialect, which is spoken largely in Hong Kong where most prominent FS masters reside and practice.

  4. Saretta

    But he also pronounced Taoism with a T when it is pronounced as D. But the information is good.

    I was initially leery about Feng Shui until a friend swore things changed after reading Lillian Too's Living with Good Feng Shui book and applying it into her day-to-day life. Googled it and found a copy from Noon Books (www.noon-books.com). I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, applying it and waiting for positive results. I swear life seems to just "flow" now instead of just "chug along" if you know what I mean. Money comes in from unexpected sources and relationships seem to require no effort. Life just seems happier. I can't explain it, but it works. I guess at the end of the day that's what it all boils down to. Super thankful I stumbled upon this and gave it a chance.

    Nice vid. He pronounces Shi wrong and he keeps repeating it over and over. Like nails on a blackboard.

    A bit disappointed with this documentary. I can't do anything about the location of my city or my house ... so who cares about the best fung shui for it. What I can do something about is the interior of my apartment but the documentary gave me no insight into this. Frustrating.
