What: Second Free Screening of "The Power of Community"

When: Thursday, May 5, 2011 7:00 PM

Where: Horizon Unitarian Universalist Church,
1641 W Hebron Pkwy,
Carrollton, TX 75010

Why: This is the story of Cuba, and how its people, in the wake of
the Soviet Union's collapse, pulled together as communities to provide for accessible, healthy food for all, and changing their transportation model to bicycles and public transport.

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. They share how they transitioned from highly mechanized agriculture to using organic farming and urban gardens. It is an unusual look into the Cuban culture during this economic crisis.

2:30-4:30 Vanishing of the Bees A FREEscreening.  www.vanishingbees.com [ibimage==1626==original_size==none==self==ibimage_left]

"Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables. Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees."
