The Greening of Cuba. 1996. 38 min. Following the disintegration of the Soviet Union, financial and food aid to Cuba dried up which necessitated a dramatic reduction in the average citizen’s daily caloric intake. This video profiles farmers and scientists working to reinvent a sustainable agriculture, based on ecological principles and local knowledge rather than imported agricultural inputs. In their quest for self-sufficiency, Cubans combine time-tested traditional methods with cutting-edge biotechnology.

Green on the Screen videos will be shown every Thursday @ 12:30pm throughout the Spring Semester in the Media Services Classroom on the lower level of the AU Library. The screenings are open to all and attendees are welcome to bring lunch.
