Discovering the World – Las Vegas, the Mirage Out West – Episode 228

In Las Vegas, the sky’s the limit. A century ago the city did not even exist. Today, in the middle of the Mojave Desert, between the Grand Canyon and Death Valley, there lies the world’s largest entertainments park. But what lies behind this ocean of dollars, these little white chapels where Elvis look-alikes wed couples one after the other, these world-beating giant hotel-casinos? Over and above the whirl of Sin City, Pierre Brouwers gives us a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes… in a film that beggars the question: mirage or reality?
