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

This 6-month Lowell film series “Land, Air & Water” is co-presented by the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust in partnership with our official host, Lowell National Historical Park.
