  • ANCIENT FUTURES: Learning from Ladakh

    time: 60minutes, language: EN
    category: documentary
    topics: ecology, culture, changes , globalization

    As this documentary is over fifteen years old one could expect it to be out of date. Far from it! Still, luckily, the remote villages in many ways remain oases of tranquillity and harmony. Fast growing Leh, by the contrast, did not yet find the needed balance between the traditions and wisdom of ancient Ladakh, and all the aspects of modernity. It still seems to forget the first and draw into the ecological and sociological problems the letter brings. Still, tourists play a big role in changing Ladakh and the Ladakhis. Still, in many irresponsible and ignorant, visit the region and trek here without paying attention to the limitations of the local resources and disrespecting the Ladakhi customs.
    Watching the film, seeing contrasts of the traditional life and disturbance of the modern, one could find it provocative and exaggerated. It is not. There is really a big gap between the harmony and wisdom of the ancient customs of the villages and the pollution, and social disturbance brought by the modern changes.
    The film must be seen by anybody intending to go to Ladakh. It will make your visit more responsible and complete. It also, for sure, will give an interesting insight to anybody interested in ecology, globalization and the future of our planet, that anyone should be.
