New Video: Oil and Bridges
Hapless tourists travel through southern Belize toward Punta Gorda, the “forgotten district”, often over unpaved roads and log causeways. Bridges have been damaged or destroyed in flooding caused by unregulated development. Andy Laties is very funny! Interview with barrier reef park ranger Oliver Garbutt, about oil drilling, and the new road being built by Kuwait. A film by Rebecca Migdal. Two parts, about 5 minutes each.
Part 2 features awesome footage of cars being towed across stream by bulldozer, and getting stuck. Then Andy does a very funny Monty Python style political comedy monologue. Just watch it!
