PADKOS BIOSCOPE NO 19
The final show for padkos bioscope 2013 goes down on 21 November! We’ll be screening The Power of Community: How Cuba survived peak oil (94 min).
This fantastic, award-winning film also closes our mini-fest focusing on the politics of food. When the Soviet Union collapsed, Cuba’s oil imports were cut by more than half – & food by 80 %. This film tells of the people’s hardships & struggles, & their community & creativity, during this difficult time. Cubans shifted from highly mechanized, industrial agriculture to using organic methods and local, urban gardens. The whole world will soon face that crisis as fossil fuels run out – Cuba is an example of options & hope.
