Please join us for a FREE Community Cinema screening of The Island President.
The Island President lifts the issue of global warming out of the theoretical and into the personal. President Mohamed Nasheed is trying to prevent 385,000 people from drowning.
The Island President is a little like non-fiction Mr. Smith Goes to Washington elevated to the world stage. The filmmakers received exclusive access to follow President Nasheed as he prepared over several months for the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Summit in December. The stakes couldn’t be higher for President Nasheed, who this as the last chance to save his homeland, and the world.
