Another chance to see our inspirational 2012 Festival opening night film, THE ISLAND PRESIDENT. Jon Shenk’s beautifully shot documentary follows the globe-trotting journey of Mohamed Nasheed, former president – he was forced to resign on February 7, 2012 – of the Maldives, the lowest-lying country in the world. After becoming the Maldives’ first freely elected leader in 30 years, takes up the fight to keep it from disappearing under the sea.
