About the Movie

Are tourists destroying the planet-or saving it? How do travelers change the remote places they visit, and how are they changed? 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” traces stories over the course of thirty years to show the dramatic long-term impact of tourism on cultures, economies, and the environment.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This well-meaning but superficial film skips across the globe, raising some provocative arguments but advancing few. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Sep 3, 2014

Fresh: [Pegi Vail's] documentary about the effects of global tourism... should be mandatory viewing for anyone who's ever thumbed through a Lonely Planet guidebook with an eye toward visiting an exotic destination. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 18, 2014

Fresh: Vail's film earnestly interrogates authenticity even as her camera lingers on a beach without footprints, inviting the viewer to walk. – Diana Clarke, Village Voice, Sep 2, 2014
