Synopsis: 

Panama’s Bocas del Toro archipelago has over the past decade been transformed into a magnet for foreigner retirees and developers seeking cut-rate property in an (as-yet) unspoiled paradise. Are we witnessing a new kind of colonialism? Panamanian-born director Anayansi Prado’s Paraiso For Sale offers an unflinching gaze into this troubling development.
