Product Description

{Winner! Toronto Int'l Film Festival, People's Choice Award for Documentary}

{Winner! Sundance Institute, Hilton LightStay Sustainability Award}

A film about one man's mission to save his nation and perhaps the planet, THE ISLAND PRESIDENT is a riveting, uplifting story that is impossible to take your eye off of.

President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives is confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced - the survival of his country and everyone in it. Nasheed, who brought democracy to the Maldives after decades of despotic rule, now faces 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 and make them uninhabitable. A classic David and Goliath tale, THE ISLAND PRESIDENT captures Nasheed's battle to stop global warming - and save his country.

Grade: A... An amazing look at how small islands could affect big change. --Drew Taylor, Indiewire's The Playlist

Critic's Pick! 3 stars out of 4 ... Wonderfully vivid cinematic portraiture. A riveting, visually dazzling film. --Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post

Powerful... Compelling and thought provoking. THE ISLAND PRESIDENT is heartening and unsettling by turns. --Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
