Summary
"Posh Corps is a documentary that focuses on the lives of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa. For fifty years, the US Peace Corps has been sending American volunteers to developing countries around the world to teach skills, and build relationships. As these countries develop, capitol cities become modern enclaves, while rural villages struggle with the cultural strain that accompanies rapid development. Today's Peace Corps volunteer is serving at the intersection of the First World and the Third World. South Africa is one of the most extreme examples of this shifting Peace Corps experience. The struggles of Peace Corps Volunteers in South Africa provide a glimpse of the future for volunteers throughout the developing world. Their stories demonstrate, that the need for Peace Corps does not end when countries become more modern... in fact, the need becomes more pressing than ever"--Container
