A Map For Saturday On MTV

February 28, 2008

It appears that MTV has decided to take a break from broadcasting mostly lame reality TV and is showing A Map For Saturday this Saturday (March 1st, starting at 10:00pm EST in the United States).  This wonderful travel documentary follows backpackers and long-term travelers around the world.  From the synopsis:

“A MAP FOR SATURDAY is the product of a year’s travel through 26 countries on four continents. Emmy winning producer Brook Silva-Braga left his cushy gig with American TV network HBO to travel the world with five pounds of clothes and 30 pounds of video equipment.

The barebones production set-up yields an intimate window onto the world of long-term, solo travel; moments of stark loneliness and genuine revelation.”

Here’s the trailer:
