A follow-up film to ANCIENT FUTURES: Learning from Ladakh.

A documentary following two women from Ladakh, or Little Tibet, a remote region in the Himalayas, on a reality tour of London to see what life in the West is really like. They are exposed to aspects of modern urban life homelessness, old-age homes, big garbage dumps that contrast sharply with the idealized media and advertising images that colonize peoples minds in the less-developed parts of the world. With stunning footage of Ladakh, this is a valuable resource for anyone concerned about the spreading consumer culture and the ensuing destruction of the planet’s cultural diversity.

The tour, sponsored by the International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC).

Claus Schenk originally made this film for German and French television. It provides fascinating insights into the pressures facing non-Western people as they confront the global economy. Conversations with Helena-Norberg-Hodge, Director of ISEC, reveal the thinking that lies behind the organization’s work.
