The Big Race

Short documentary shot in Antsirabe, Madagascar

What do two small boys in Madagascar do with a free day? Tulch and Noel, best friends with a day off from school, successfully illustrate that you don't need fancy toys or the latest technology to have some fun on a beautiful summer afternoon. Maybe all you need is a tin can and a little imagination.

The Big Race has played in film festivals around the world, and is included in the Family Media Collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian Museum of African Art in Washington, DC, and numerous other library and film collections.
