Strip The City uses stunning CGI animation to strip the world’s most extreme mega-quake city – Tokyo - naked of its steel, concrete, ocean and rock – layer by layer – to explore the secret technology and infrastructure that keeps it standing in a mega quake.
Tokyo is under attack from the Earth’s most devastating forces with the threat of tsunamis from the East, mega-quakes emanating from miles below and an active volcano - Mount Fuji - to the West.
How does the city’s buildings and infrastructure survive the onslaught of a destructive mega-quake? This film looks beneath the city’s skin to discover the engineering wonders and geological forces that make it possible. Stunning CGI animation peels back the glass off its skyscrapers and rolls up its roads to reveal the city’s secret of survival.
Tokyo’s engineers and geologists reveal the ingenious technology that keeps the skyscrapers standing, power this futuristic metropolis and prepare its residents for some of the deadliest quakes on the planet. The film explores the geology that shaped the city’s past and challenges its future, from the active volcano looming in the West to the fault lines that threaten tsunamis and the next mega-quake.
