  • I'm hitting the road again and want your ideas!

    If you live in Hong Kong or are an expert on the city, start here: : http://www.vox.com/borders-local

    Vox Borders is an international documentary series that focuses on the human stories of some of the world's most interesting places. It started last year with six locations, and six docs. Check them out here: http://bit.ly/2H7Ttxv

    For season two, I'll be traveling to new places to tell similar stories. Hong Kong is my first stop where I'll be producing multiple shorter video docs on the local stories that need explaining.

    Vox Borders stories are always so much stronger when the community helps in the storytelling. To that end, I'm looking for locals from Hong Kong (or Macau) who want to help with the project. If you have local knowledge of Hong Kong, head to vox.com/borders-local to tell me more about yourself and how you'd like to contribute to the project. If you've been to Hong Kong and just want to contribute an idea, you can do that too.

    I'll be on the ground in Hong Kong in late May 2018. See you there!

    Think about the triple border of Brazil ,Argentina and Paraguay.
    It’s very interesting how the cities rely on each other and take advantage of the boarders. The city of Ciudad Del Este in Paraguay became a Huge trading center because of that.
    Also there is a very peculiar and strong Islamic community in the region.
    Of course that you got also Itaipu Dam (2nd largest in the world), Iguaçu Falls and all the illegal trading going on.

    Love your videos, time to learn about geography and history, or even social & politics issues between two neighbouring countries. If you can explore about the borders between the South East Asia (ASEAN) Countries especially between Malaysia and Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea or East Timor which I believe having a lot of uncovered stories. -Arf

    You should go to the Basque Country because of its unique language and identity. Also Miami could be a good spot because of the huge Cuban influence where everyone can speak Spanish and Cuban food outnumbers American food.

    You should definitely consider documenting the border between Colombia and Venezuela. Colombia and Venezuela are like twin countries that have always had this love/hate brother relationship which has made the trade between the two countries very dynamic. Historically speaking though, it had always been Colombians crossing to Venezuela to look for a better life and to scape from the Colombia conflict with the guerrillas. However, after Chavez's policies that destroyed Venezuelan internal production and the oil price drops, it is now Venezuelans who desperately try to cross the Colombian border to move to Colombia (or to cross Colombia to travel to Ecuador, Peru, Chile or Argentina) to scape the Venezuelan crisis and start a new life in a different country. I am sure this border could give you enough material to make three or four videos.

    you need to come to the border between Venezuela and Colombia or Venezuela and Brazil for you to experience the massive migration thanks to the Venezuelan crisis. Please come to see this.
