Description

Gringo Trails

USA / 2013 / 79 minutes / Director: Pegi Vail

Are tourists saving the planet or destroying it? How do travellers change the remote places they visit? This film examines the answers — some heart-breaking, some hopeful.

From the Bolivian jungle to the party beaches of Thailand, and from the deserts of Timbuktu, Mali to the breathtaking beauty of Bhutan, the film shows the unanticipated impact of tourism on cultures, economies and the environment, tracing some stories over 30 years. Backpackers and local inhabitants tell startling stories of transformation, for good and ill.

Screened at Doc Edge Festival 2014. Book now to secure your seat!
