Tuesday, March 5th, 7:30-9pm, Green film: “The Island President,” Campus Theatre, 413 Market St., Lewisburg. ”The Island President,” a 2011 documentary by Jon Shenk, relates the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives. After bringing democracy to the Maldives, Nasheed faced an even greater challenge: a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1,200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable. ”The Island President” captures Nasheed’s first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009. On Feb. 7, 2012, Nasheed resigned under the threat of violence in a coup d’etat. A panel discussion, moderated by Peter Wilshusen, will follow the film screening.
