Film Society Will Show Cuban Documentary

St. John Film Society will show a “vibrant and hopeful” film about the resourcefulness, determination, and optimism of the Cuban people as they recover from economic crises and make the transition to a more sustainable way of life. It will be screened at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 6, at Sputnik, in Coral Bay.

“The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil,” is a documentary directed by Faith Morgan and co-produced by Pat Eugene Murphey and Megan Quinn (53 min. 2006).
This inspiring film offers us a living model of sustainability, as Cubans tell the remarkable story of their nation’s recovery and its transition to organic agriculture, renewable energy, effective mass transit, lowered consumption, better health and stronger communities.
Come out early for Julietta’s delicious rotis and bring a chair if you’ll be late.
Special Announcements: In keeping with the Halloween spirit, St. John Film Society has selected two very different but equally foreboding films for audience consideration. Visit the Web site for details on how to vote for one of two choices for a Halloween film at www.stjohnfilm.com
