Civic Film: The Island President
The Island Presidenttells the story of former 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. Following the film, stay for a faculty led discussion. The film will show at 7:00pm on Monday, September 24 at the Normal Theater. No cost for admission and no pre-registration. Concessions will be available. This event is co-sponsored by the American Democracy Project and in conjunction with PBS.
