As they travel around the globe, tourists are often changed by their experiences—but what is the impact on the places they visit? Gringo Trails reveals the unanticipated effect of tourism on cultures, economies, and the environment from Thailand to Timbuktu, telling startling stories of change wrought in the name of adventure and fun. This nuanced, absorbing, clever film lays out the issues and suggests alternatives for people who want to travel responsibly.
Q&A filmmaker/anthropologist Pegi Vail, associate director of NYU’s Center for Media, Culture, and History, with JBFC Programmer Karen Sloe Goodman.
