(USA, 2011, 101 mins)
After spending years in prison as a political dissident and finally bringing democracy to his country, President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, the lowest-lying country in the world, takes on his biggest fight: to keep his homeland from disappearing under the sea. This is a fascinating and powerful portrait of a man and a country, and a essential behind-the-scenes look at the effects of global warming and how world politics works and doesn’t work.
