Amidst the excitment and momentum of #occupywallstreet, New Yorkers have yet another event to look forward to in their city. On November 8, 2011 in NYU's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, there will be a previewing of the powerful new film, The Island President, featuring a International Advisory Council member, climate movement leader, and President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed.
