July 27th- Dundas Street West at Indian Grove- Movie “The Island President”, starting at 9 p.m.
‘The Island President’ , the documentary film by Jon Shenk tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced – the literal survival of his country and everyone in it.
Having brought democracy to the Maldives after three decades of despotic rule, Nasheed must now overcome an even greater challenge: one of the lowest lying countries in the world, its 1,200 islands are at risk of being submerged should sea level rise as little as three feet. The film captures Nasheed’s first year in office and follows him to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009.
