A Story of Resilience through Community
by June, Community Bookstore Manager

The Power of Community DVD The Power of Community DVD
A Story of Resilience through Community
Produced by Community Solutions, directed by Faith Morgan. DVD, 53 minutes, 2006. Region-free.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba’s economy crashed. With imports of oil cut by more than half – and food by 80 percent – people were desperate and starving.

The documentary opens with a short and effective global history of Peak Oil, especially focused on the United States. Economic tailspin, famine and wars are portrayed as more than apocalyptic sci-fi scenarios: after all, mankind has already used up half of the world’s oil resources.

Cuba has been the first country to face the peak oil crisis. Surprisingly, The Power of Community  manages to turn our fear and apprehension about the future to hope. It shows how communities pulled together, created solutions and ultimately thrived.

This DVD tells of the hardships and struggles as well as the strength and creativity of the Cuban people. An empowering story about conservation and cooperation, it suggests an inspiring model for the rest of the world.

The Power of Community DVD is compatible with DVD players worldwide.
