“Camera, Camera” – Documentary by Malcolm Murray

In Documentary Film on June 25, 2010 at 9:17 am

A disturbing but important look at camera ubiquity and the seeming end of getting ‘off’ the beaten path. There’s a good discussion over at the NYT Lens Blog on the making of the doc and how this proliferation of cameras increasingly puts a distance between tourists and their surrounds.

The world as a whole is being altered by the colonization of fragile cultures by camera-carrying travelers.

Looking forward to seeing this documentary; hope that it makes it beyond the festival track.
