The Chanburi Buffalo Races in Thailand is an annual event that dates back at least a century. The dangerous races are entertaining to spectators while having high stakes for the riders. Valuable prizes and prestige are awarded to top jockeys who devote a considerable amount of training and time in preparation. Filmmaker Roberto Serrini described the event as, “A crazy sight; exciting, frightening, fast, furious, dangerous, and beautiful.” Captured in a unique fashion, Roberto employed drone footage combined with selective desaturation to put a modern artistic spin on the traditional festival.
