Panama

PARAISO FOR SALE

With low property values and crystal-clear waters, it's no wonder that Bocas Del Toro, Panama, is the newest Caribbean hot spot for American retirees. But every paradise has its price, and the rapidly expanding town is being torn apart by corporate greed while the original indigenous population is being pushed out of their rightfully owned land. This revealing documentary follows a relocated American couple, an indigenous leader fighting for his community and a local businessman turned political hopeful, all trying to save the place they call home. Official Selection, 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival.
