Screening: The Island President

Screening April 16, 2012 7:00 PM

The Island President tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives’ battle for the survival of his country and everyone in it.

As one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1,200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable.

The Island President chronicles Nasheed’s first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, providing a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that takes place.
