In partnership with Emmy award-winning PBS series Independent Lens, Arts, Culture & Fun presents The Island President.

President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives is a man with a bigger problem than other world leader has ever faced – the literal survival of his country and everyone in it.  After bringing democracy to the Maldives, he must now ensure that his tiny country doesn’t disappear under rising sea-levels brought about by climate change. 

Jon Shenk's film The Island President compellingly illustrates the perils of climate change.  An audience discussion will follow the screening.  Please RSVP with your name and number of guests.
