On April 3, 2013, Nine Community Cinema in St. Louis Missouri held a public screening of “The Island President,” at the Missouri History Museum. “The Island President,” lifts the issue of global warming out of the theoretical and into the personal. President Mohamed Nasheed is trying to prevent 385,000 people from drowning. His nation of 1,200 low-lying islands, the Maldives, is sinking into the Indian Ocean as sea levels rise due to global warming.

Nine Digital Producer, Philip Nations recorded these audience reactions following the film.
