Rethink Afghanistan

Film and Audience Discussion May 7, 2010


“Rethink Afghanistan is a brilliant masterpiece” - Thom Hartmann

“A wakeup call for those who still believe our military should be in Afghanistan -- Rethink Afghanistan should be the Saturday matinee at the White House.” - Michael Moore

“In-your-face, makes-you-think documentary. What are we doing there? Do these people really want us? An indispensable guide to what’s really going on in Afghanistan. Not what you read in the mainstream newspapers or see on television.” - Oliver Stone

Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post, 10-4-09: “In Rethink Afghanistan, Robert Greenwald's powerful look at the war (and a film Joe Biden should see right away), Robert Baer, a former CIA field operative says, ‘The notion that we're in Afghanistan to make our country safer is just complete bull****... what it's doing is causing us greater danger, no question about it. Because the more we fight in Afghanistan, the more the conflict is pushed across the border into Pakistan, the more we destabilize Pakistan, the more likely it is that a fundamentalist government will take over the army -- and we'll have Al-Qaeda like groups with nuclear weapons.’”

The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

Film and Audience Discussion 12/4/09


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. It is an unusual look into the Cuban culture during this economic crisis, which they call "The Special Period." The film opens with a short history of Peak Oil, a term for the time in our history when world oil production will reach its all-time peak and begin to decline forever. Cuba, the only country that has faced such a crisis – the massive reduction of fossil fuels – is an example of options and hope.
