We’re proud to be sponsoring Vancouver Festival of Ocean Films presentation of The Island President playing on Sunday, June 9th at 1pm, at the VanCity Theatre. We’ll also be giving out mini-bags of freshly roasted Ethical Bean coffee to everyone who attends.
Playing as part of the Vancouver International Film Festival, the documentary follows the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives. President Nasheed is a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced—the literal survival of his country and everyone in it.
After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable.
There is only one showing of this amazing documentary, so if you want to beat the rush and get tickets, then you can buy them online through the VIFF website. Select Oceans Festival June 09 Mat. in the list.
If you’d like a chance to win a pair of tickets for The Island President film, then leave a comment on our Facebook page! We’ll do a random draw from all comments on Thursday, June 6th. Good luck!
