Next film’s working title: THE HUMAN MACHINE.
The subject of Carl Valiquet’s next project will be on people working physically.
During his recent voyage in Indonesia, where he shot and edited a film on the ritual of cockfighting, Carl Valiquet was struck by the great number of people who lift or move large loads by the shear force of their arms or that carry heavy objects on their heads.
In search of images of these “workers”, the photographer filmmaker plans to travel the whole of Indonesia, from East to West. He will then go to India and Bangladesh.
