The Rickshaw Run is race against time and … the laws of physics, mechanics, weather, nature…
Not all the teams can make to the end.
Team Chang made it!
Have a look to how they managed to travel for more than 4000 km across India on a a very dodgy rickshaw and survive.

Maldives are formed by 1.190 coral islands, between Arabian sea and Laccadive sea: there’s no place to build a modern garbage dump, as you can more easily do in a larger territory. Every day from Malé a lot of of trucks go to Thilafushi island to dump tons of garbage. After burning it, garbage is thrown into the sea. For about 100 men from Bangladesh this is a very hard job. The biologist Professor Paolo Galli from Milano Bicocca University and cde.cosulting are studying how to get a solution for garbage disposal. In the last 10 years, the increasing number of tourists and of general consumerism have developed tons of waste. These images are the TEASER of a work-in-progress documentary: our aim is making people discuss and find a solution, and not criticizing what Maldivian government is doing (or not doing) about it.

These images were shot with the help of Giulio Pedretti, my partner in this project, and with the support of Paolo Galli and Bicocca University, which have created a research outpost center on Magoodhoo island (Fafoo Atoll) where biologists and students can study the ocean bed.

Bangkok at the rush hour: tons of cars and buses caught in endless queues, 2 hours to cross the city. Tourists can wait, but how do the inhabitants manage the traffic? They walk on the water: 90.000 people, 100 boats, 30 stops, every 3-6 minutes, from 5:30 am to 8:30 pm.

But who works on those boats? Tighrope workers…
