I've just finished watching a sneak preview of the excellent film Gringo Trails and it is great.
To use their own words:
"Are tourists destroying the planet - or saving it ?
How do travelers change the remote places they visit, and how are they changed? GRINGO TRAILS, a new documentary film offers answers some heartbreaking, 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, GRINGO TRAILS shows the unanticipated impact of tourism on cultures, economies, and the environment, tracing some stories over 30 years. Through serious and at times humorous reflection, backpackers and local inhabitants tell startling stories of transformation."
The smart cookies over at Outbounding have a preview screening, but you need to join the site to get the password -- You've got till Sunday to do so. If you've got the spare hour and a bit you'll need to watch the film, I highly recommend it. It is thought provoking and Haad Rin gets a mention -- you should see the footage from "back in the day." Also covered is Bhutan and Bolivia.
More information at Outbounding here. You need to become a member there (it is free) and then you'll get a password for the film.
Till Sunday only!
