Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is a vibrant metropolis of 12 million inhabitants. Here, markets, tiny shops and bazaars pack just about every street corner. The merchandise ranges from traditional local products all the way to fast food, coffee to go and luxury goods.

80+1 – A JOURNEY AROUND THE WORLD immerses you via live video into the hustle and bustle of colorful everyday life in Dhaka. Every day, we’ll be visiting another market and enjoying fascinating experiences—for instance, a ride in a rickshaw or a tomtom (horse-drawn cart). In Dhaka, we’ll be shooting short daily videos that, at the end of the project, will be edited into an 81-minute film.
