Summary Three films explore ways in which people can live without too much dependence on oil and other objects of mass-consumption. The power of community : how Cuba survived peak oil shows how ordinary Cubans worked together to survive and to thrive when oil and other imports radically declined after the fall of the Soviet Union and made the transition to a less oil-dependent nation peacefully and productively. Escape from affluenza and Radically simple feature pioneering people in the U.S. and abroad who are consuming less, living better, and helping to build truly rich and sustainable communities.
