Cuba: The Accidental Eden – Screening & Discussion at DC Environmental Film Festival

March 27, 2011 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

CUBA: THE ACCIDENTAL EDEN (USA, 2010, 60 min.)

Cuba may have been isolated politically and economically for the past 50 years, but its borders have remained open to wildlife for which Cuba’s undeveloped islands are an irresistible draw. While many islands in the Caribbean have poisoned or paved over their ecological riches on land and in the sea in pursuit of a growing tourist industry, Cuba’s wild landscapes have remained virtually untouched, creating a safe haven for rare and intriguing indigenous animals, as well as for hundreds of species of migrating birds and marine creatures. Coral reefs have benefited, too. Independent research has shown that Cuba’s corals are much healthier than others both in the Caribbean and around the world. Written and produced by Doug Schultz for PBS NATURE.

Discussion with David E. Guggenheim, who stars in the film, follows screening.
