When dream beaches in Thailand are closed or cities like Venice resist cruise ships, something is wrong. Mass tourism is destroying exactly what we are actually looking for when we travel.
This award-winning documentary uses examples from 16 countries to show the damage that too many travellers can do to the environment, nature and social structures. It also shows forms of sustainable tourism that allow the local population to participate and protect the environment. Many international, top-class experts provide valuable impulses for a rethinking of travel as a positive experience for both holidaymakers and destinations.
Director's Biography:Tyson Sadlers has previously released short films on socially critical topics. Now we present his first feature-length film, for which Sadler has already won the jury prize at the Calgary IFF 2021 for best documentary on social sustainability issues, among others.
