Micronarrativas: Viaje Por Un Sol

The growing number of motokars and mobility in Peru that brought three-wheeled vehicle for the local disadvantaged background are the themes of the series Viaje Por un SoL. 12 micronarratives be released weekly as a result of the partnership between the filmmaker and Eryk Rocha  and SerTãoBras
More than 400 000 motokars are currrently in Peru in a fleet of only 1.4 million vehicles (Brazil has 49 million cars!). The Motocar – Peruvian equivalent of the tuk-tuk or autorickshaw – is widespread throughout the country, except in the central areas of large cities. The series title, Viaje Por un SoL, refers to the marginal cost of an average race – 1 sol (Peruvian currency) – which equates to only R$ 0.57.In view of SerTãoBras images enliven the debate on alternative transportation popular in Brazil. It is important to show – on the go – this three-wheeled vehicle at this time in Brazil where the two wheels (bike) is at the center of controversy over security and democracy in transit.
