The Man in the High Castle filmed a foot chase through a Japanese market in a parking lot off Arch Alley in downtown Vancouver a week ago. It looked magical with floating lanterns and strings of lights. Based on Philip K. Dick’s award-winning novel, Amazon Prime’s 10-episode series imagines an alternate reality where the Japanese and Germans win World War II and divide the United States into three regions — the west coast as the Japanese Pacific States, the Rockies as a neutral zone and the east coast as the Greater Nazi Reich. Produced by Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), the series stars Alexa Davalos as Juliana Crain, Rupert Evans as Frank Frink, Luke Kleintank as double agent Joe Blake and Rufus Sewell as SS Obergruppenführer John Smith.
