Shanghai: Life in the Megacity, a 2018 DW Documentary production that takes us into Chinas most populated city with an estimated 23 million inhabitants.
Millions of more people are expected to be living there year-on-year, which could make it the biggest city in the world, for it is already the second largest by population after Chongqing, also in China. When you compare Shanghai to a large city in the west, say, Chicago with a population of around 3 million it gives you an idea of how big it really it.
But what is more amazing is the huge modern highrises and neon lights which illuminate the city every night and the pace in which people live their lives in Shanghai. This short documentary reveals Shanghai like never before.
