The film The Island President lifts the issue of global warming out of the theoretical and into the personal. President Mohamed Nasheed is trying to prevent 385,000 people from drowning. His nation of 1,200 low-lying islands, the Maldives, is sinking into the Indian Ocean as the sea levels rise. This film profiles his efforts to convince world leaders to halt global warming. A panel discussion follows the film.
