The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

When Cuba lost access to Soviet Oil in the early 1990’s, the country faced an immediate crisis – feeding the population – and an ongoing challenge – how to create a new low-energy society.

This film tells the story of the Cuban people’s hardship, ingenuity and triumph over sudden adversity – through cooperation, conservation and community, told in their own words. “Cuba has disproved the myth that organic agriculture cannot maintain a modern nation.” Join us for this special screening.
