FOR HIRE: BANGALORE RICKSHAW BY XAVER XYLOPHONE


For Hire: Bangalore Rickshaw by Xaver Xylophon is a vibrantly illustrated video the captures a day in the life of a rickshaw driver in Bangalore, India. "Based on days of riding around in rickshaws and drawings made locally, this animation captures the tough workaday life of a rickshaw driver, seen through the eyes of a European visitor." Many would say that the trains are India's most iconic form of transportation, but I'd argue the rickshaw is and this video is a great homage.
