For nearly 20 years, the self-orga­nized Motor­rodil­lo Asso­cia­cion has pro­vid­ed people in Colom­bia with an afford­able means of local trans­porta­tion. They are cob­bled-togeth­er plat­forms with seats for pas­sen­gers, space for lug­gage, com­bined with a motor­cy­cle that maneu­vers the vehi­cle along a rick­ety dis­used rail track through jungle, over rivers and through towns. Although every­thing seems impro­vised, the trans­port of people and loads works won­der­ful­ly. But the state wants to inter­fere, and all dri­vers are required to prove that they have a dri­ver’s license and health insur­ance. So far, every­thing has always gone smooth­ly, but what comes next is uncer­tain. 

Alba Jaramil­lo lives between Colom­bia, New York and Paris. She stud­ied media arts at the State Uni­ver­si­ty of New York, Buf­fa­lo. She cur­rent­ly works as an editor for BBC Reel and as a pro­duc­er for CNN’s Great Big Story. Her work com­bines video, audio com­po­si­tions, and site-spe­cif­ic media to explore notions of trans­gres­sion of pri­vate and public space. Films: PROJECT FOR A COLLECTION (2013, 10 min); REMATE ESPECIAL (2015, 3 min).
