Earth Matters Film Series to Present “The Power of Community” on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at Camelot Theatres

On Saturday, May 19, 2012, The Earth Matters Film Series will present The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

When the former Soviet Union collapsed, Cuba’s oil supply stopped. Cuba is the only country to face such a sudden, massive reduction of fossil fuels. Cubans had to quickly adapt and co-create ways to prosper.

This beautiful, exotic, uplifting and inspiring documentary shows how communities reinvent and rejuvenate. It shows us the ways of survival and sustainability.

Discover why Cubans say, with less oil, their community is much better than it was before. Being better than before is the essence of what
the Earth Matters films is all about.

Join us for this beautiful, practical and hopeful event, hosted by Peter McGugan.
