The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil is a strong documentary that explores the economic collapse and eventual recovery of Cuba following the fall of the Soviet Union. Dramatic steps were taken by Cubans into urban agriculture, while dealing with major issues of energy dependence and sustainability.The film is a reflection of the Cuban economy, heavily dependent on economic aid from the Soviet Union, suffered tremendously following the end of the Cold War. The nation lost half of its oil imports, and 85 percent of its international trade economy. Cuba began its slow recovery focused on finding new energy sources, while rejecting consumption in favor of sustainable growth.
