VIDEO S&WFF;: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil (Last Day to Submit FIlms)

When the Soviet collapse occurred in 1990 Cuba had an emergency transition to local organic agriculture, renewable energy, and large-scale mass transit. The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil (US/Cuba, 2006, Documentary, 53min by Community Service Inc, Faith Morgan) uses Cuba's experience to show how a society can change from an industrialized, global focus to a local, community-based one. The filmmakers approach Cuba as a living model for how the rest of the world can respond to the coming world oil production peak. More info here and here.
