THE GOOSE WITH THE GOLDEN EGGS: TOURISM ON COSTA RICA’S PACIFIC COAST (USA / Costa Rica, 2014, 34 min.)

World Premiere How is the ongoing tourism boom in Costa Rica affecting this Central American country’s natural resources? Through interviews with government officials, tourism experts and members of coastal communities, the film examines how tourism and the need for lodging have impacted this nature-lover’s paradise. We learn about how small, locally owned eco-lodges give back to their communities and preserve natural resources while large, foreign-owned resorts are eating away at the forest and restricting access to public lands. This documentary seeks to further understanding of the differences between high value and high volume tourism. In Spanish and English with English subtitles. Directed and produced by Charlene Music and Peter Jordan.

Discussion with Richard Krantz, President, Pilot Productions, Dr. Martha Honey, Co-Director, Center for Responsible Travel, and Elizabeth Becker, author and former New York Times correspondent, follows screening.
