Surviving the Death Road (institutional customers)

 How much reality does the international adventure tourist truly want?  On the the “world’s most dangerous road” in the Bolivian Andes, foreign mountain bikers and local truckers share a narrow shelf road known for its toll of accidents and deaths.   They pass within inches of each other, yet they are worlds apart.  At the end of the road, the tourists pause to celebrate their “survival” with beer and t-shirts, in an impoverished village that struggles to preserve its culture and to improve the terms of exchange with the bike concessions that leave little for local people.  A bus crash late in the film reveals the attitudes of locals and tourists towards matters of life and death, development, and tradition, and highlights the assumptions and prejudices of each group towards the other.  Filmed over a five-year span, this 45-minute film tracks the inspiring journey of a local community into the global marketplace of the 21st Century.
