Slow Food on Film: "The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil"
Please join us for a screening of "The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil" followed by a panel discussion with sustainable food system author-activist Jason Mark. Reception to follow.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba's economy went into a tailspin. With imports of oil cut by more than half - and food by 80 percent - people were desperate. This film tells how they transitioned from highly mechanized agriculture to using organic farming and urban gardens. It is an unusual look into the Cuban culture during this economic crisis. Today, Cuba is the only country in the world that has switched to almost total organic farming.

Jason Mark is an author-activist engaged in the movement for a sustainable food system. He is a co-manager at Alemany Farm, San Francisco's largest food production site. He is also the editor of the environmental quarterly, Earth Island Journal. His Spring 2007 Earth Island cover story profiled urban, organic agriculture in Cuba.
