Friday movie explores power of community

LAKEPORT – Bring your brown bag lunch and join Supervisor Denise Rushing for the upcoming First Friday Lunch Hour movie at the Lake County Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes, Lakeport. All are welcome.


"The Power of Community" will be shown at 12:05 p.m. Friday, June 6, in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the courthouse.


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 of the hardships and struggles as well as the community and creativity of the Cuban people during this difficult time.


Cubans share how they transitioned from a highly mechanized, industrial agricultural system to one using organic methods of farming and local, urban gardens.


It is an unusual look into the Cuban culture during this economic crisis, which they call "The Special Period."


The film opens with a short history of peak oil, a term for the time in our history when world oil production will reach its all-time peak and begin to decline forever.


Cuba, the only country that has faced such a crisis the massive reduction of fossil fuels is an example of options and hope.
