Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil Crisis (2006)

Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil Crisis is a 2006 documentary based on a trip to Cuba by filmmaker Faith Morgan and Eugene “Pat” Murphy. Morgan and Murphy travelled to Cuba through the Global Exchange in 2003. It was the year when Murphy began studying and discussing worldwide peak oil production.

A second meeting to the Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas led Morgan and Murphy to a group of experts that believe the doom of mankind after using up more than half of the world’s oil resources. Morgan and Murphy learned that Cuba went through economic meltdown after losing over half of its oil imports, but the nation managed to survive. They travelled to Cuba to find out how the country was able to survive without using fossil fuel.

The eye-opening film features astounding facts about the struggles of Cubans, and the sacrifices the government had to make in order to survive the oil crisis. According to their studies, Cubans were able to wean themselves off fossil fuel and this transformed the source of the country’s revenues. Farmers no longer relied on fossil-fuel-based pesticides and fertilizers. The locals began living a more sustainable lifestyle. And in the end, Cubans proved that it’s possible to survive without using fossil fuel.

Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil Crisis aims to educate people about the importance of sustainability and to lift the US’ prejudice of Cuba.
