The Island President (2012)

The Island President (2012)
Directed by: Jon Shenk
Country: USA

Summary: President of Maldives battles against the global warming.
Review: A documentary whose admirable hero is Mohamed Nasheed, former president of Maldives. Nasheed played an important role in the political fight for democracy and human rights, and later by trying to alert the world for the global warming threat, exposing the risks of complete annihilation of his country and culture. For that, he added sincerity and determination to a very original campaign. “The Island President” shows the magnificent beauty of the islands in addition to the sad evidence of the ocean rising waters. Hope is still alive but the reality is very shocking and worrying, making us realize that this problem must be urgently solved.
Relevant awards: People Choice Award (Toronto).
