With the all of the Olympic hype infiltrating the media, ‘The Dark Side of the London Olympics’ Vice documentary is refreshingly realistic.

It offers insight into the local implications of the supposed regeneration to the city of London as they host the 2012 Summer Olympics. With interviews from people being relocated for the purpose of the games, it is interesting to see a take of the festivities from a Londoner’s perspective.

The documentary delves into an alternate view of the athletic event by uncovering less than favorable facts regarding the games. Some of these include the supposed disturbance of radioactive waste, relocation of East Londoners and cultural impacts of the Olympic legacy.

Although the games are a time of unity and joy, it’s important to hold a conscious and well-rounded perspective of the 2012 Olympics.
