The Power of Community
Transition Town Kensal To Kilburn's monthly film and discussion night.
£5 entry to film - tickets available in advance from the Lexi
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. Cuba, the only country that has faced such a crisis – the massive reduction of fossil fuels – is an example of options and hope.
The film will be followed by an open meeting with speakers including Pat Thomas from Meat Free Mondays in the Constitution Club from 8.15pm - free entry and open to all
