Jon Shenk’s “The Island President” tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. Unless dramatic changes are made by the larger countries of the world, the Maldives, like a modern Atlantis, will disappear under the
waves.

This is the fourth in our film series related to the exhibition on view, “The Stumbling Present: Ruins in Contemporary Art.” It is also part of the “Critical Issues in America: Figuring Sea Level Rise” series, a project of the Carsey-Wolf Center’s Environmental Media Initiative. The exhibition and this film series have been generously sponsored by Marcia and John Mike
Cohen.
