Ancient Futures is a remarkable look at the root causes of our environmental and social crises, and a powerful challenge to re-examine what we mean by "progress."

Ladakh, or "Little Tibet," is a harsh, beautiful land high in the Western Himalayas of India.

Now, centuries of ecological balance and social harmony are eroding as the result of western influences.
