the icemen - angadias of india ( 1 X 60' )
The Angadias – literally “one who carries valuables” – perform a task that major carriers in the region such as FedEx decline because of the risks involved. Ironically, even without handheld scanners and high-tech tracking systems, this simple delivery system is the fastest, cheapest, and most reliable method of transporting goods in this region of the world. Plainly dressed, unarmed, and carrying unmarked canvass sacks, these men transport 4 million dollars worth of diamonds each day – yet earn salaries of less than 50 dollars a month.
