FREE FILM SCREENING—THE ISLAND PRESIDENT

THE ISLAND PRESIDENT (free film screening)

Director Jon Shenk’s The Island President is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives as he confronts the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. A three-foot rise in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives and make them uninhabitable. The Island President captures Nasheed’s first year of office, culminating with his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, where the film provides a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on at a top-level global assembly. Despite the modest size of his country, Mohamed Nasheed has become one of the leading international voices for urgent action on climate change.

Tuesday, May 28, 2019, 6:00-7:45 p.m.
