CRITICAL PRAISE FOR THE ISLAND PRESIDENT
“Inspiring … Offers not only a Mandela-like tale of political heroism but a much needed perspective on climate change.”
– John DeFore, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Powerful… Compelling and thought provoking. THE ISLAND PRESIDENT is heartening and unsettling by turns.”
– Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES
[About Mohamed Nasheed] … “A courageous and inspiring figure.”
– Marshall Fine, THE HUFFINGTON POST
“Jon Shenk’s fascinating documentary feature THE ISLAND PRESIDENT personalizes the threat of global warming, and nationalizes it too.”
– Joe Morgenstern, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
