â€œThe Paths of Changeâ€ was shot on the Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica in Bahla Ballena, Punta Uvita. The film tells the story of a community in transition, faced with critical decisions on planning, zoning and development - decisions that will have a lasting impact on the social and environmental welfare of the region and citizens. The film crew worked far in advance and collaborated with La Municipalidad de Osa, the Costa Rica Ministry of the Environment and Energy (MINAE-ACOSA), and La Alianza de Dessorollo, an organization of local leaders who believe that sustainable economic development must go hand-in-hand with the protection of their natural resources.
