We recently added “The Island President” to the DBRL collection. The film played at the True/False Film Festival earlier this year, and currently has a rating of 98% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
President Mohammed 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.
