We’re very excited to announce our support of the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival (HRAFF) again this year.
In 2012, we’re teaming up with HRAFF to bring you a screening of The Island President, documenting the important work of former President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed, in the lead-up to the Copenhagen climate summit.
This powerful film follows Nasheed as he tries to persuade the world to commit to a carbon pollution target that guarantees the survival of his island nation. Paced by a stirring Radiohead score, it’s David meets Goliath in this incredible documentary about a small nation’s struggle against climate change.
Where: Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Federation Square, Melbourne
When: 6:30pm, Sunday 27 May

We’re especially thrilled to follow this screening with a live videocast Q&A session with Mr Nasheed himself, alongside his climate advisors Mark Lynas and Shauna Aminath.
The Island President will also be touring the country. Dates, times and locations below:
