Movie of the Day – The Island President

Posted on the 23 February 2013 by Plotdevice39 @PlotDevices

Today will be my previous review of one of my favorite documentaries of 2012, The Island President.  A documentary that chronicled the crisis of global warming by putting a face to the crisis, an island nation that is slowly being wiped off the map because of rising sea waters.  The Island President is a chronicling of a the monumental task at tackling a global problem by what some would consider to be the little guy in the fight.  A small island nation that becomes the driving force behind a global initiative, challenging the large, industrial nations to make a change or face the fate that they are currently facing.  It was an incredible documentary that was both serene and captivating at the effects that global warming is having.  Finally showing the consequences of our development in a bustling industrial age.

The Island President makes you care about what happens to the Maldives and Nasheed’s vision for a country who is on the brink of disappearing.  An island paradise of white, sandy beaches and dotted with the reminder of past indiscretions from a leader who did everything to oppose democracy and change.  Nasheed’s story and that of the island, is the true reason to see this documentary.  You will know more about this country leaving the theater than you did before you entered it.  A fast paced film with moments of stoppage from the more weighted political bantering that seems to be a parallel to the slowness of change itself.  But you will feel uplifted and involved in the climate debate when you see firsthand, those that are fighting to survive.
