This time out we will be screening the award-winning documentary film, The Island President.
The Island President is 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.
The film captures Nasheed's first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, where the film provides a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on at such a top-level global assembly. Despite the modest size of his country, Mohamed Nasheed has become one of the leading international voices for urgent action on climate change.
The Sustainable Living Film Series is a documentary series presented by the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College that screens films with a focus on environmental protection and sustainability, and features a different organizational partner for each presentation. For this screening we are partnering with Citizens Climate Lobby Long Island. They are building the political will for a stable climate through empowering individuals to take meaningful actions.
Our friends Patti Whitaker and Rich League of 7 Angelica Farms will again be catering our film screening. Reason enough to come!
If you come straight from work in a suit, we promise not to make fun of you.
All are invited. Feel free to bring a friend or two, but please be sure to RSVP.
