The Power of Community is an inspiring description of how the people of Cuba overcame the loss of most of their oil supply; how they worked together at the grassroots level to feed themselves and move forward, into a lifestyle that is probably superior to what they had before.

Also presenting: Jungle Space
Jungle Space is a short photo essay with music made by Green-Screener, Steve Edwards who employed what he calls the ‘manky-montage-motif’ editing technique to convey a jungle vision for the urban-suburban habitats of Tämaki Makaurau. What unfolds is the story of the Jungle Spaces’ themselves – that are and could be – as told by a foot-path chalk narrator who provokes the viewer to let the light bulb go on by instigating or joining-in the transformation from ‘chit-chat’ into community-wide action. By using the asphalt as a medium for anarchistic communication, its inert functionality is altered as the chalk insights people with maths to ‘evolve’ by walking beyond their talk.
