Paradise With Side Effects Public Screening
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.
