Independent Lens: The Island President

A chronicle of the first year in office of Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed, who undertakes a campaign to raise awareness about the catastrophic consequences of global warming, culminating in a trip to the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Summit. His passion for the cause is fueled by self-preservation: His island nation will become a modern Atlantis if sea levels continue to rise. A savvy politician, his stirring speech on the subject leads to an agreement when it seems the summit may end without one.
