Focus on Cuba!

Documentary Screenings

Join us for two screenings of award-winning documentaries focusing on the resilient people and natural wonder of Cuba.
 
On Thursday, Feb. 26, we will be screening The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990, oil and food imports in Cuba dropped by more than half. This documentary details the hardships and showcases the creativity the Cuban people displayed as they struggled to overcome this exceptionally difficult period in their history.
 
Come back on Thursday, March 5, when we will be screening Cuba: the Accidental Eden, about the virtually untouched nature to be found on the island and its waters.

The tourism industry that has had such a devastating impact on other Caribbean islands has not developed in Cuba, making it a haven for native and migratory species, as well as making its coral reefs some of the most healthy on the planet.

Both screenings will take place in the meeting room on the main floor of the library.
