Film Synopsis: The Island President

Director: Jon Shenk | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2011 | Length: 101 min
Language: English with English subtitles | Certificate: PG Cert

The Island President is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced—the survival of his country and everyone in it.

After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable.
