Night On Earth: Gringo Trails

She Fah Szetu | Melissa Chan

25-Oct-14 00:35

Unregulated tourism in an age of swelling populations and affordable travel is depleting the heritage, soul and resources of many destinations across the world. We meet the young woman who is infusing new blood into the Baba and Nonya Heritage Museum in Malacca and ask her if perhaps the Unesco Heritage listing is more curse than blessing.  Then we speak to the filmmakers behind “Gringo Trails” a movie that examines the impact of global backpackers who exist in a carefully curated bubble of banana pancakes and lattes , snapping selfies as the local community’s resources are depleted.
